EDIT: Since the launch of this program one year ago, 2,600 residents have ordered a free composter, which translates to over 798 tons of waste diverted from City’s landfill. However only 16 businesses are participating in the program.
According to the City’s Green Works initiative (Website), 24-percent of the municipal solid waste stream is food and yard waste. In an effort to reduce that number, the city will be promoting the use of house-hold composters.
The City will be offering free composters and educational workshops to Orlando residents, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Be sure to look at the home composting guide for more information on composting and click HERE to apply for your free bin.
The Get Dirty campaign is part of Mayor Buddy Dyer’s mission to make Orlando one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the country.
