The sale has closed -- please check back next year!
We are pleased to announce that this year the Town of Cary will be selling rain barrels in addition to the compost bins we sell online every Spring. Through this opportunity, you can order your own home compost bin and/or rain barrel at below-wholesale cost and turn your kitchen scraps into organic fertilizer and your rainwater into a valuable reserve of water for your garden. Made available through EnviroWorld, the 82-gallon residential compost bins and 55-gallon rain barrels are offered for purchase for half of the typical retail price.
The Town of Cary believes in supporting your home composting and water conservation efforts so that together we can significantly reduce landfill waste and stormwater runoff in our community.
To help you live green and save green, we contract with an outside company that manufactures home compost bins and rain barrels for an annual online sale. Citizens can order and purchase these items through an online system during a four week period each Spring. Purchased compost bins and accessories will be shipped in bulk to the Town of Cary and each purchaser will receive a notification to come and pick up their bin.
Along with this sale, we also have online resources about composting and water conservation. Additionally, we host compost giveaway workshops and free demonstrations every year at our Compost Education Center in Bond Park. And did you know that all of our yard waste that we collect at the curb and our Citizens Convenience Center is composted? In fiscal year 2017, the Town collected 20,147.25 tons of yard waste for composting.
Please see our Composting Solutions page for quick tips and to learn more about our Town Composting Ordinance. Additionally, we also recommend checking with your HOA, when applicable, regarding home compost restrictions.
