Compost Policy

I wasn't able to find any information on how to compost in Fort Pierce Florida or if they have curbside composting. However, I was able to find some information on the Synagro website, where they do provide a ton of information and other resources on how to compost correctly. It looks like they do have facilities in For Pierce Flordia. For more information and to check them out please visit: http://www.synagro.com/offerings/composting/
