Passaic County to Hold Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale

Passaic County to Hold Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale

On Saturday, May 13, 2017 the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be sponsoring a Compost Bin and Rain Barrel Sale and Education Program at the Clifton City Hall Complex, 900 Clifton Avenue at Dog Pound Road, in Clifton, N.J. from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm, rain or shine.  

“Composting is nature’s way of recycling, turning your vegetative kitchen scraps, coffee grinds, tea bags, grass clippings, brown leaves and dead garden plants into rich organic compost,” according to Nina Seiden, Passaic County’s Solid Waste & Recycling Programs Manager. “This compost can be used in your vegetable and/or flower gardens while keeping all of the unwanted waste material out of the landfill.”

The renowned Earth Machine Compost Bin will be available at a special price of $55, cash or check including tax (retail value of $100) while supplies last. Additional composting accessory items for purchase include kitchen scrap buckets, aerators, chicken-wire style holding bins, and more. Those reserving a compost bin for purchase by May 11, 2017 will receive one free kitchen scrap bucket per household. 

Rain Barrels may also be purchased for $75. They come complete with accessory pieces to connect to your downspout, and a mosquito screen to prohibit breeding of disease-carrying larvae. Educational seminars on composting and how to utilize a rain barrel effectively to conserve water will be held throughout the event. To reserve your compost bin and/or rain barrel to guarantee availability the day of the event, please call the Passaic County Office of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738 and give your name, phone number and number of compost bins/rain barrels to be purchased.
