Compost Bins for Sale

Hoping to clean up the Big Bend, hundreds of residents came out to purchase compost bins.

The long lines were a sure sign that residents care about keeping the earth clean.

The City of Tallahassee Solid Waste Services and Leon County Recycling offered the compost bins at a discounted price of only $30.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said using the compost bins help divert yard trash from landfills and can help reduce erosion and pollution.

The bins also allow residents to save money by producing their own fertilizer.
