Rain Barrel, Compost, and Worm Bin Sale. To encourage the use of recycled content material and
more efficient use of water, the City is offering rain barrels at a huge discount. In addition, start backyard
composting with a compost bin to save resources and money. Composting is a natural process that turns
yard waste into rich soil. Yard waste contains mostly water. Once the material decomposes, rich soil is all
that’s left. Worm bin composting is an efficient way to convert kitchen scraps into nutrient-rich compost
for your garden. Simple to assemble and can be stored in or outside. Items made from recycled plastic.
