Purchase a compost bin or rain barrel by March 27

Your coffee grounds are a natural resource when you have a compost bin, and so are lots of other things you might otherwise throw away! A compost bin keeps a lot of your kitchen garbage out of the trash and makes it into free compost for your garden. A rain barrel helps you hold onto rainwater and use it for your garden.

Now's the perfect time to order a compost bin or a rain barrel – they're on SALE and orders are being accepted now through March 27. Compost bins are only $47 (regularly $79) and rain barrels are just $65 (regularly $115).

Pre-ordered bins and barrels will be available for pickup at the Living Green Expo at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds May 2 and 3. This is a project of the Recycling Association of Minnesota and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. To order or for more information, visit Recycling Association of Minnesota.
