As part of the Wolfeboro-Area Earth Day 40th Anniversary Celebration, Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.) is participating in a statewide backyard composting bin and rainwater barrel sale. Through April 2nd, 2010, a home compost bin and how-to guide with a combined retail value of $100 can be purchased for only $45. The bin is black, has a 10-year warranty, and is made of 100% recycled plastic. It’s approximately 33″ high and 33″ wide, or large enough for a family of five. For an additional $10 you will receive a kitchen pail to collect food scraps by your sink before disposing them in your outdoor bin. Large 55 gallon rainwater barrels made from high density poly-ethylene up to 50% recycled plastic with a retail value of $120, will also be made available for only $65. These rainwater barrels will include all accessories necessary to attach the barrel to any existing downspout system.
