Montclair residents will be able to pick-up free compost, buy low-cost compost bins and rain barrels, and get some tips about sustainable yard care at the town’s tenth annual “Compost Give-Back” in Edgemont Park on Sunday, October 26, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Nature’s Choice — Montclair’s composting facility — has generously donated a pile of their professionally-made compost for the event, made from leaves and grass clippings collected curbside around town. Residents may collect up to 35-gallons (bring your own bags and shovel) of “Black Gold” for their gardens, backyards, and houseplants.
Additionally, the Township purchases “Earth Machine” compost bins (retailing at over $100) at wholesale prices, and offers them at cost — to residents only –for just $57, along with compost aerators (for turning) on sale for $15.
And this year, Rain Barrels will be sold — at cost — for just $75 to the first 15 residents!
