Are you in the market for a rain barrel? What about a backyard compost bin?
The City of Houston Green Building Resource Center is sponsoring a rain barrel/ compost bin sale to anyone interested in rain barrels and compost bins at a greatly reduced price. A percentage of all sales goes to the continued work of GBRC in educating the public about conservation and recycling. Deadline to order is Sunday, May 7.
For just $69.00 you can purchase a 50 gallon, 100% recycled mega-star rain barrel that regularly retails for $129. The Ivy rain barrel comes with everything you need to assemble, collect, and use rain water. Barrels can easily be daisy chained with no added cost- all components included, even a 6' long overflow hose!
Also available is a 65 gallon backyard compost bin. Easy to assemble, the bin has 5 panels and weighs only 20 pounds. The bin comes with composting instructions to make your adventure a success and one for which your plants will thank you! The backyard composting bin is being offered for the low price of $65.
Both items will be available for pick up on May 13 at the Houston Permitting Center, located at 1002 Washington. Pickup hours are from 10 am - noon.
