The City of Medford is pleased to offer compost bins at a greatly reduced price (63% savings).
You must order your compost bins online and pick them up from the City Hall parking lot on Wednesday, June 24th between 5PM and 7PM.
Compost bins can be ordered online here: http://medfordenergy.org/gogreen/compost-bins/
The compost bins offered are the Earth Machine model by Orbis Corporation and can be purchased for a limited time through the City at $40 a piece (they regularly retail for $110). Each Earth Machine compost bin has an 80 gallon capacity, twist locking lid, a harvest door for easy compost removal, vertical and horizontal ventilation, is made from recycled content, BPA free and has a UV stabilizer for added resistance to deterioration from sunlight.
The City’s order must be placed by June 10th. Therefore orders are only guaranteed if placed by end of business on Wednesday, June 10th. After June 10th you may be able to purchase them “while supplies last.” All compost bins must be picked up at City Hall on Wednesday, June 24th from 5PM to 7PM.
Composting is an excellent way to reduce trash, improve your soil and help the environment.
