Florida Yards &
FYN Principle #7 - Recycle
At least 45% of household waste can be composted; every day we throw away many
valuable things that could be used to benefit our yards. Composting is a simple,
cost-effective method of converting “wastes” into a highly desirable product.
You can purchase an Earth Machine Composter for $45.50 (payable by check only)
at the Mid-County Mini Transfer & Recycling Station at 19675 Kenilworth
Boulevard, Port Charlotte Tuesday through Saturday 9:00am-4:00pm.
Adding compost can:
Improve soil structure, texture and aeration.
Increase the water holding capacity of soil.
Help loosen compacted soils.
Promote soil fertility and stimulate root
Create a favorable environment for nature’s “soil
builders,” microorganisms, earthworms and insects.
