Composting helps the City keep unnecessary food and yard waste out of the landfill and is a great way for residents to contribute to the Green Works Orlando 50% by 2018 and 100% by 2040 waste reduction goals! The City of Orlando is offering free composting workshops through a partnership with the Orange County IFAS Extension Office. Instructor Ed Thralls will teach you the steps to effective composting as well as the benefits of creating compost in your own backyard. You will also learn how the composting process works, and how you can use your finished compost.
