$50 instead of $100

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Recycling Program within the Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances is offering compost bins that can be pre-ordered online at $50, half the retail price of the bins.

The bins must be picked up by the purchaser at any of three locations: from 8 a.m. to noon April 27 at the Blue Hen Corporate Center, 655 S. Bay Road, Dover, order by April 21; from 8 a.m. to noon May 11 at DNREC Lewes Field Facility, 901 Pilottown Road, order by May 5; and from 8 a.m. to noon June 8 at Fort Dupont State Park, at Old Battery Lane and Hall Road, order by June 2.

Orders for discounted compost bins must be placed at enviroworld.us/delaware, with major credit cards and PayPal accepted.

Bins must be picked up between 8 a.m. and noon at each location, during which time DNREC’s Recycling Program will be onsite to provide assistance ensuring that Delawareans can use their new backyard compost bins for successfully converting organic waste to compost. These compact compost bins can quickly turn food scraps and yard waste into a nutrient-rich soil amendment that replaces traditional fertilizers to produce healthier plants and vegetables in home gardens.
