Compost Bins & Rain Barrels

Managing food waste at home and collecting rain to water your plants are both great ways of practicing conservation. To help residents compost and reuse rain water, Rockland Green is providing compost bins and rain barrels for sale at cost. Click here for more information or call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rockland County at (845) 429-7085.

Rockland Green encourages homeowners to compost their yard wastes and food wastes at the source...your home! Composting reduces the amount of waste that requires transportation to landfills and, ultimately, waste disposal costs. Your finished compost can be used to improve the soil quality in your vegetable garden, on your flower beds, and even on your lawn.

Rockland Green also encourages you to practice water conservation by installing a rain barrel to collect rain water for watering your plants. It can lower your water bill and also serve as a useful reserve to water your plants during drought periods.
