Why Compost?

Environmental& General Services is excited to be offering this bulk composter and rain barrel sale. The goal of the program is to help divert food scraps from the waste stream (up to 30% or more by weight is comprised of food scraps and compostable soiled paper and cardboard), and raise awareness regarding the benefits of compost, which include improving or maintaining high quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone.  Want to learn more? . Want to learn more? Check out this great video: 

Composting substantially reduces waste, enriches the soil, holds soil moisture (saving water by 25-30%!), helps prevent erosion, suppresses weed growth, reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, and offers a variety of other benefits. Healthy soils grow healthy food and plants!

Why use a Rain Barrel?

Rain barrels reduce storm water runoff, this is water that does not soak in to the ground and can transport many pollutants to our local waterways. By using harvested rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, potted plants and for washing off patio furniture and tools, rain barrels conserve water. From a gardening perspective, the natural nutrients in rainwater make it far better than tap water, which has chlorine and fluoride in it. With a rain barrel, gardeners can minimize or eliminate their use of chemical fertilizers.
