Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale In Clifton This Sunday

CLIFTON, NJ – On Sunday, October 1, 2023 the Passaic County Division of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs will be sponsoring its Autumn Compost Bin and Rain Barrel Sale open to all (no county residency required) at the Clifton Boys and Girls Club located at 181 Colfax Avenue from 10 am to 2 pm, rain or shine. Composting is nature’s way of recycling by turning your vegetative kitchen scraps, coffee grinds, tea bags, grass clippings, brown leaves and dead garden plants into rich organic compost. This compost can be used in your vegetable and/or flower gardens while keeping the unwanted material out of the landfill. Rain barrels which enable the collection of water for reuse around your garden, are also for sale.

To purchase a compost bin, rain barrel, or other accessory items and ensure their availability the day of the sale, please visit Passaic County’s online store at  where the renowned Earth Machine Compost Bin will be available at a special price of $69.95 (50% off the retail price), as well as rain barrels for $79,95. Other items for sale include: kitchen scrap buckets, aerators, chicken-wire style holding bins, and more. Tips on how to compost, as well as on how to utilize a rain barrel effectively to conserve water will be provided at the event. For further information, please call the County of Passaic Division of Solid Waste & Recycling Programs at (973) 305-5738.
