O-Town Compost

Program overview

O-Town Compost seeks to become a key component of Orange County’s waste diversion infrastructure to help the City of Orlando meet its zero waste goal and extend the life of Orange County’s landfill. As of today, in total O-Town Compost has helped Central Florida divert  4.1 million lbs. This amounts to roughly 243,745 lbs per month and 56,249 lbs. per week.
