[ARCHIVED] Rain Barrel and Compost Bin Sale

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, October 8.

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 Saturday October 14 at the Houston Permitting Center, located at 1002 Washington. Pickup hours are from 10 am - noon.
