Inexpensive Rain Barrels And Compost Bins Help ‘Green’ The Earth

Recycling Association of Minnesota Logo

The Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM), in partnership with Tri-County solid waste and the City of St. Cloud, is offering an easy solution to green up your backyard this spring by providing inexpensive rain barrels and compost bins for area residents at wholesale price.  By composting organic waste (vegetable scraps and yard waste) and capturing rainwater from the roof, you can reduce the need for expensive fertilizers and reduce your water bill.

To ensure you receive yours at the discounted price, Minnesota residents must pre-order on RAM’s website,  There are several distribution events this spring including one in St. Cloud so it is easier than ever to get a rain barrel or compost bin.  RAM provides everything you need to get started-even a ‘how to guide’ to learn about composting and rain barrel use best practices compiled by industry experts.

Pre-ordered compost bins and rain barrels will be available for pick up in the St. Cloud area on May 13 & 14 at the Central Services Building-St. Cloud May 13 & 14 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, for more information and to order visit
