Order a compost bin or rain barrel now, pick it up in the spring
Get a jump-start on gardening by ordering a $55 compost bin or a $69 rain barrel for your home. (These regularly cost $105 and $139.)
By using a compost bin, you can keep more than a quarter of your household waste out of the garbage while making valuable compost for your garden.
A rain barrel will help you save water and money by using rainwater rather than the faucet for your garden and trees. Rain barrels are also a way of trapping the stormwater that runs toward the storm drains – picking up pollutants along the way – and into our lakes, streams and rivers.
Order now and pick up your compost bin or rain barrel in Minneapolis Saturday, May 30, from the Recycling Association of Minnesota. To pre-order now, find more information or see other dates and locations, go to www.recycleminnesota.org.
