Montgomery County will offer compost bin and rain barrel truckload sale from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 at the Greater Plymouth Community Center, 2910 Jolly Rd., Plymouth Meeting.
Compost bins, valued at $100, will be available for sale at $45 including tax. Rain barrels, valued at $120, will be available for sale at $55 including tax. Cash, checks and credit cards, as well as Visa or Master Card, will be accepted.
“This is a great opportunity for Montgomery County residents to recycle and reuse their food scraps, yard waste and rain water,” said Montgomery County Recycling Director Chris Kaasmann. “Through composting, residents can decrease their trash output by 10 to 30 percent while providing a great soil amendment for their yard.
“Collecting rain water can help the environment, and our wallets, by reducing potential storm water runoff while also providing free water for yard plants and vegetation.”
The sale will take place rain or shine. All items will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, while supplies last. Both the compost bins and rain barrels should be able to fit in most cars.
