Low-cost rain barrels, compost bins available
The City of Plymouth has partnered with the Recycling Association of Minnesota to offer low-cost rain barrels and compost bins to residents.
Orders must be placed online at recycleminnesota.org by Thursday, May 10. Orders must be picked up between 8 a.m. and noon Saturday, May 12 at the Plymouth Maintenance Facility, 14900 23rd Ave. N.
Cost to purchase a compost bin through this sale is $64. Cost to purchase a 45-gallon rain barrel is $79. Supplies are limited.
Rain barrels can help conserve water and save money by capturing and reusing rain water for landscaping and other purposes. They also help reduce storm water runoff, which can add pollutants to lakes and streams.
Using a compost bin can help reduce household waste by more than 25 percent and prevent it from being dumped into a landfill. Using the material generated by composting is also a natural way to fertilize and add nutrients to gardens and landscaping.
