Composting Information
The Town of Surfside encourages composting. Yard trash (landscape waste and grass clippings) comprises approximately 25% of our residential waste stream.

What is compost?
Composting is the material derived from the aerobic decomposition of organic material such as leaves and grass. The resulting compost is a nutrient-rich soil enhancer that can improve soil quality.

Why should I compost at home?
Composting at home is a great example of environmental stewardship. It can help reduce your waste stream while producing a valuable soil amendment that can be used with house plants and gardens.

How do I make compost?
Making compost can be as simple as mixing leaves (carbon-rich materials and freshly cut grass (nitrogen-rich materials) into a pile. Often a compost bin is used to enhance the compost process.
