[GreenYes] Re: Where do residents get compost bins if their municipality does not subsidize them?



Hi Justin ~

We don't subsidize the sale of compost bins, but we do have an annual one-day sale in which the manufacturer brings several semi-trailer loads of bins to our sites and sells them.

We found that very few stores sold or sell compost bins in our county; hence the need to have an alternative way to provide them to our residents.
