• Backyard composting


    One surprising outcome of COVID19 is the increased interest in gardening and backyard composting. To encourage and support our residents, the Town of Holland has partnered with other communities to provide backyard compost bins at a reduced rate (by buying in bulk).

    To begin composting your grass, leaves and organic matter, we are offering a limited supply of composting bins for $50.  Contact the Town Clerk for more information or to order a bin: or 608-526-3354.
