The City of South Padre Island Environmental Health Services Department (EHSD) is launching the Composter Loan Program available to residents of South Padre Island. This composter is easy to use and has a tumbling design that will help residents implement green practices of their own.
Composting helps soil hold or isolate carbon dioxide, restores exhausted soil by replacing trace minerals and organic material. Overall, compost makes major contributions to soil health and increase the chance of plant success.
“Green waste, such as kitchen scraps, leaves, branches, grass and shrub trimmings may be ground up and reused as nutrient-rich soil,” said J. Victor Baldovinos Environmental Health director. “This is a great opportunity for waste diversion since organic matter can be turned into valuable products including compost and mulch.”
Requirements for the Composter Loan Program:
- 90-day loan agreement
- Refundable $50 deposit
- Composting Made Easy training
