The City of Largo continues to expand a commitment to sustainability through a new composting bin program. The program, which provides a free composting bin to Largo residents for their own home use, launched on World Food Day, October 16, 2020. 

Largo team members dug into the data from the bin request form and a follow-up survey and here are some early successes of this new initiative:
  • 555 Largo residents have requested a compost bin since program launch in October 2020.
  • Nearly half of those that requested a bin had never composted before. (Welcome new composters!)
  • Individuals shared that they composted for a variety of reasons including: providing healthy soil for their garden, improving the natural environment, reducing their waste, and reducing their carbon footprint.
Largo residents also shared some of their challenges such as: maintaining the ratio between "browns", "greens" and moister level as well as tips for rotating the compost and incorporating worms (vermicompost). Check out these and other frequently asked questions in the FAQ section on Largo.com/Compost. 

Are you ready to start composting? As one resident shared, "Don't be afraid, it's a simple way to decrease the amount of trash and also helps with plants around the house." Request a bin today!

City Staff discovered the failure of a 72-inch storm pipe along West Bay Drive in Downtown Largo. Engineering responded to a report of a large hole next to the roadway near Ulmer Park. Coordinating with the Public Works Department, staff barricaded the area for immediate safety. The City is working with a contractor to stabilize the failure and working to avoid damage to the nearby roadway or sewer system. The stabilization work will happen over the next few weeks in July and will provide a temporary fix to the larger issue of failing pipes due to age.

The Pinellas County Fertilizer Ban is in effect from June 1 through September 30, strictly prohibiting the sale or use of most lawn and landscape fertilizers as they contain Nitrogen and Phosphorous. Over 70% of Pinellas County waters contain excess amounts of these nutrients every year, causing harmful algae blooms that can even lead to fish kills. Excess nitrogen can lead to decreased water quality and can affect the health of the plants and animals that live in our local waterways.
