Northeast Resource Recovery Association offers compost bins

The Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRRA) has been helping member municipalities and businesses advance their recycling efforts for over 26 years.

It is estimated that 25% of an average household’s waste contains kitchen scraps and yard trimmings. This material can readily be composted instead of thrown into landfills or burned at an incineration facility.

Utilizing the principal of cooperative purchasing, the NRRA is able to offer participating groups high quality Earth Machine compost bins for less than half the retail price. The 80 gallon bins, which are made of 100% recycled plastic, enable residents to convert leaves, grass and table scraps into garden soil.

Visit www.nrra.net for information and consider coordinating the sale for your town.
