Supplies are limited. Pre-pay for your rain barrel and/or composter and pick up at the Collingswood Green Festival on Saturday, April 22, 2023, anytime between 9 am and 2 pm.   

  • Composters: The Earth Machine Compost Bin has an 80-gallon capacity and, is made with 50% recycled plastic, and provides a convenient way to keep food & yard waste out of the waste stream. This is North America’s #1 selling backyard compost bin because it features snap-together construction, an off-set retrieval door, 4 anchor pegs to secure the unit to the ground, a locking lid, and a “how-to guide. 
  • Rain Barrels: Conserve water and cut household water bills with a backyard rain barrel. Rainwater, free from chlorine and water treatment chemicals, is an excellent choice for watering for lawns, plants and gardens. Our 55-gallon barrel comes with an overflow hose and spigot and features a fine mesh lid to prevent debris and mosquitos from getting out. Rain barrels come in tan or green.
