The City of St. Petersburg has launched its first residential composting program. Residents in single-family homes who are interested in composting are invited to sign up for the free and voluntary program and minimize their environmental impact by turning kitchen and yard waste into usable, nutrient-rich fertilizer.
Participants in the composting program will receive a composting bin from the City to use in their backyard. There will be no collection service, but the resident will be responsible for feeding and maintaining the bin and will reap the benefits of the nutrient-rich compost by spreading it on their lawn or garden.
More information and the composting bin request form can be found at www.stpete.org/composting
