Discounted Rain Barrel and Compost Bin Sale Scheduled for this Saturday
The Cities of Urbana and Champaign along with the University of Illinois Extension will host a truck sale this Saturday featuring deeply discounted rain barrels and compost bins. The May 25th sale will be held in the parking lot north of the City Building at the corner of South Vine Street and East Green Street from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Rain barrels, available for purchase for $55.00, help residents store water for gardening. This practice helps reduce demand on aquifer water while reducing runoff to the city stormwater system. Compost bins, available for purchase for $45.00, help residents turn food scrap and landscape trimmings into nutrient-rich compost for gardening while reducing waste sent to landfills. Associated compost products including kitchen collection containers, compost aerators, and compost thermometers will also be available for purchase.
Interested residents should park at the City Building or other designated parking areas and line up to make their purchases on foot. After making purchases residents can load their vehicles in the alley behind the parking lot. For faster service on the day of the sale, residents can pre-pay for their products online at www.enviroworld.us/pre-order.
