Watervliet Organic Waste (WOW) Program
A number of households in the City participate in the WOW Program. This is an organic waste disposal program put in place to reduce our carbon footprint and to reduce costs of waste disposal. This is done by separating normal garbage from organic waste, and then taking the organic waste and creating compost and renewable sources of energy. To become involved in the WOW Program, please contact Chris Daus at 270-5093 to get all the supplies that you need to begin (free of charge).
