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 gearth-compost@gmail.com 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
