County Backyard Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale

As a member of the county's Environment and Energy committee, I am always looking for ways to increase my own sustainability and for helpful tips for my constituents.

The Westchester County Department of Environmental Facilities does many things to encourage recycling – including promoting composting. Do you already compost or are you looking to begin? Then get yourself a compost bin.

Groundwork Hudson Valley and Southern Westchester Energy Action Consortium are sponsoring a compost bin and rain barrel sale at various dates and places. Products must be pre-ordered.

Sunday, May 20, 2012:

  • 10am-1pm at Sarah Lawrence College, Andrews Parking Lot at the intersection of Kimball Avenue  and Glen Washington Road, Yonkers
