Spring is just around the corner and it’s not too early to think about the yard and garden. Trumbull residents can purchase compost bins and green cone digesters at reduced costs.

Composting is a process where organics such as kitchen scraps and yard wastes are recycled into a rich fertilizer. Digesting is where all organic household waste, including meat and bones, is digested and is primarily reduced to water.

Trumbull residents can purchase a backyard Garden Gourmet Compost Bin for $30 and a Green Cone Digester for $50. The containers will be available for pick-up on Saturday, April 6, at the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center, located at 7115 Main St.

Pre-ordering and pre-payment is required and is available only to Trumbull residents. For an order form, visit trumbull-ct.gov or contact Robin Bennett, at 203-452-5056 or by email at rbennett@trumbull-ct.gov.
