This year, the City of St. Petersburg celebrated National Learn About Composting Day. If you didn’t know that was a national holiday, you do now!

The City of St. Petersburg prioritizes sustainability and resiliency. It is our mission to help residents understand the value in minimizing their environmental impact. Through composting, the nutrients created will benefit the earth because you opt in to a regenerative process, meaning you will use less chemicals on other products (your garden or lawn) in the long run.

St. Pete residents are encouraged to sign up for the Residential Composting Program. It’s free and you will receive a St. Pete-branded composting bin to begin your composting journey!
