There are many facilities in Florida that produce composts and other recycled organic waste products that could be used in FDOT projects. The purpose of this fact sheet is to inform interested parties (e.g., engineers, contractors, purchase agents) of a publication that should be quite useful in locating the large volumes of product that are normally required for FDOT projects. The FORA (Florida Organic Recyclers Association) division of Recycle Florida Today compiled and published a list of organic recycling facilities in June 2000. The publication is entitled, Organic Recycling Facilities in Florida and is the most comprehensive compilation of such information we have found. It provides location, contact information (phone, fax, email, mailing address), facility owner, when the facility was established, annual tonnage and volume, feedstocks accepted, products produced, services provided, and other information for the 75 facilities listed. The facilities are listed alphabetically and by county. Another section lists in abbreviated form the contact information, including names of the facility operators. The publication is available in pdf format on the Florida Department of Environmental Protection web site (www.dep.state.fl.us). At this writing the specific address of the publication is: www.dep.state.fl.us/waste/quick_topics/publications/ documents/organicrecycling.pdf Questions about the report or about facilities which may have come on line since publication of the list can be directed to: Recycle Florida Today, Inc.
