Compost Bin Sale

EPPING —In celebration of Earth Day, April 22, the Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) will once again sponsor the ever popular “Annual Compost Bin Sale” to support nature’s way of recycling!

This year’s sale includes compost bins, rain barrels, kitchen pails and compost turners.

As the first non-profit recycling cooperative in the United States, the NRRA has been helping member municipalities and businesses advance their recycling efforts for over thirty years with the ultimate goal of reducing waste and increasing recycling regionally. The Compost Bin Sale is an annual fundraiser and is one of many programs offered by the cooperative to help reduce waste in greater New England. It is estimated that twenty-five percent of an average household’s waste contains kitchen scraps and yard trimmings. This material can readily be composted instead of thrown into overburdened landfills or burned at an incineration facility.

Utilizing the principal of cooperative purchasing, the NRRA is able to offer participating groups high quality Earth Machine (www.earthmachine.com) compost bins for less than half the retail price! These eighty gallon bins, which are made of 100%, recycled plastic, enable residents to convert leaves, grass and table scraps into an abundant supply of rich garden soil. Last year over thirty organizations in NH, VT & CT participated with over 500 compost bins being sold. Each bin diverts approximately 500 pounds of waste from the waste stream. The 2012 sale helped divert a total of 254,500 pounds of waste from Northeastern landfills and incinerators. That is the equivalent of eleven garbage trucks full of waste!

If you missed your chance to purchase a compost bin, kitchen pail, rain barrel or compost turner or to participate as a group last year, please contact Kris Stanley at 1-800-223-0150 or go to www.nrra.net.

It’s not too late to sign up! Please consider helping your community reduce waste by coordinating a sale for your town.
