The yearly sale is back!

The composter and/or rain barrel should be pre-paid prior to pick up. Pre-orders are closed but there will be a small supply of rain barrels and composters available at the event. 

  • Composters: The Earth Machine Compost Bin has an 80-gallon capacity and is made with 50% recycled plastic and provides a convenient way to keep food & yard waste out of the waste stream. This is North America’s #1 selling backyard compost bin because it features snap-together construction, an off-set retrieval door, 4 anchor pegs to secure the unit to the ground, a locking lid and a “how-to guide. Cost is $50.
  • Rain Barrels: Conserve water and cut household water bills with a backyard rain barrel. Rainwater, free from chlorine and water treatment chemicals, is an excellent choice for watering for lawns, plants and gardens. Our 55-gallon barrel comes with an overflow hose and spigot and features a fine mesh lid to keep debris from getting in and mosquitos from getting out. Cost is $60.
