Specific to NH – composters available at Beaver Brook

I wrote about these composters last year in my column and wanted to let NH/Mass. local people know that once again they will be available from Beaver Brook in Hollis NH until April 2, 2010.

We got the composting bin last year and it is where the poop from the coop goes (along with yard clippings). Most of our food waste goes to our chickens who eat it and start breaking it down for us automatically (original composters that they are).

***********************************

Tired of seeing all of those kitchen leftovers from preparing meals and snacks get thrown out in the trash or eaten by critters in your makeshift composting bin in the backyard? Here’s your chance to turn those scraps into a rich soil amendment.

As part of Earth Day 2010 celebrations, Beaver Brook is participating in a statewide backyard composting bin sale. Through April 2, 2010, a home compost bin and how-to guide with a combined retail value of $100 can be purchased for only $47. The bin is black, has a 10 year warranty, and is made of 100% recycled plastic. It’s approximately 33″ high and 33″ wide or large enough for a family of five.

A smaller container, The Kitchen Pail, designed for kitchen organics, is also available for only $10. This beige oval shaped pail with tight-closing lid has a 7 ½ liter capacity and accommodates the shape of dishes making it perfect for mess-free scraping.

New this year is a Systern™ Rain Barrel for $60. It’s a 55 gallon tan barrel made from high density poly-ethylene (HDPE) with up to 50% recycled plastic.

It’s estimated 25 percent of the average household’s waste consists of yard trimmings and kitchen scraps which can be easily composted. Recycletown residents can money for every ton of waste they compost because it is not shipped out of town for disposal.

Let’s boost that number further while helping our gardens grow! Call 603-465-7787 to order or mail a check with “Earth machine” in the memo field.

    Thanks for this information! I am VERY interested. Where do you keep yours Wendy? Is this something you keep outside your door or out in the back yard?

    • Gale,

      I’m just seeing this comment. Sorry. We keep our composter in the woods behind the henhouse. As a lot of our chicken poop goes into it, we wanted to make sure it was far away from our house and any neighbor’s houses.

    Hello I am very interested in the chance to buy this composter. I just came across your ad making them available for $47, could I still come get one? Thank you for your help. Jen

    • Jennifer,

      The composters were on sale at Beaver Brook in Hollis until April 2. Last year they ordered a few extras so if you contact them they might be able to help you.
