  • Rainwater barrels




  • Composting bin




The Orange County Orange County DPW Division of Environmental Facilities has collaborated with The Hudson Highlands Nature Museum in Cornwall to sell compost bins and rainwater barrels for up to 50 percent off retail prices.

The goal of the collaboration is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of reducing solid waste sent to the landfill as well as using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment.

Order your rain barrel or composting bin at www.orangecompostersale.ecwid.com. Pre-ordered bins and barrels will be distributed at the Nature Museum’s Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 27, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road.

Contact 1-800-842-0527 or email orange@compostersale.com for questions or additional information.

The deadline for pre-orders is Thursday, April 25. Pre-orders must be conducted online. Only a limited number of sales and transactions will occur on the day of the event. All orders must be picked up on April 27. Any orders not collected by the end of the event will be temporarily held and donated to local non-profit organizations, charities and/or schools if not claimed.
