Home Composting

Home composting of yard waste and select kitchen waste takes materials that could wind up in a landfill and converts it into compost, a useful product for our South Florida gardens.

It also avoids the energy and carbon emissions associated with transportation of this material to a centralized final disposal site.

Anything that was a plant can be composted.

Miami-Dade County's Department of Solid Waste Management is hosting home composting workshops in cooperation with the Miami-Dade County Cooperative Extension.
