Green Earth Composting Program

Melbourne Beach resident Scott Parker runs a composting program through Green Earth Composting here in town. If you are interested in participating in this environmentally friendly and free program, email Scott at with your name and home address. If you need a bucket for the compost just ask and he can supply one free of charge. Compost is collected every Thursday.

Some benefits of composting are:

  • keeping added waste out of landfills
  • providing up to 15 times more water retention in the soil
  • keeping chemicals out of the Indian River Lagoon
  • provides a source of nutrient rich soil for use in community gardens and local parks
