The easiest way to give back to the earth is to recycle your organic material into compost! In Brandon, homeowners can take part in the Green Cart Program. Participation for the Green Cart Program is on a volunteer basis, homeowners will receive a green cart to put their kitchen scraps (no meat or dairy), and yard waste into. Organic material is collected from April-end of October (weather permitting).
The finished compost is then tested for quality and used within city operations and offered to the public at special events.
