Backyard Compost Bin & Rain Barrel SALE!!! One Day Only!
The Hamilton County Recycling & Solid Waste District is having their annual, one day only backyard compost sale! For Hamilton County Residents only, the sale is THIS Saturday, May 14th from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. The sale will be at two locations:
10400 Reading Rd.
Evendale, Ohio 45241
(Corner of Reading Rd. and Glendale-Milford Rd.)
Green Township Administration Complex
6303 Harrison Ave.
Cincinnati, Ohio 45247
(1 mile south of I-74)
The bins are in limited quantities, so get to the sale early! They are easy to assemble, and cost only $35 (typically they retail $100)! The compost bins are 33” h x 31” w. Compost turners, kitchen collection pails and compost thermometers will also be available for purchase. The popular “I heart compost” magnets will be available with a purchase of a bin or supplies, while they last.
Also this year, discount rain barrels will be available for purchase at $50, thanks to a partnership with the Metropolitan Sewer District. Join us in conserving water and diverting water from the storm water system! The rain barrel offered at this sale is 34” h x 24” w and can hold up to 55 gallons of water. Using a rain barrel to harvest rain water and reusing it outside on lawns and gardens can save a homeowner up to 1,300 gallons of water. Please note that rain barrels installed in the City of Cincinnati are required to direct rain barrel overflow back into the existing storm drain systems on the rain barrel owner’s property.
So come on out to the sale this Saturday and turn your yard into a "green" one. Supplies run out quickly, so get there early!
