Help yourself, your wallet and your earth at the same time!
Purchase a rain barrel and/or a compost bin at a reduced price through the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM). You can pre-order a bin or barrel on the RAM website.
Brooklyn Park residents get a $20 discount, and you may also choose to pick up your order on May 7 at the Operations & Maintenance Facility, 8300 Noble Ave.
Use the discount code BP20Off when ordering, no matter which pick-up date you choose!
Food scraps such as fruit and vegetable peels, stale bread, wilted lettuce, coffee grounds, egg shells, and tea bags as well as weeds, faded flowers, and vines are among the things you can put into your compost instead of your garbage.
Compost can be used as mulch and plant food in your yard. Keeping organic waste out of your garbage reduces your trash volume so you could switch to a smaller garbage cart and save money!
Capture rain in a rain barrel and have a free source of water for your garden. In addition to saving you money, rain barrels can keep moisture away from your foundation and prevent debris from washing into our storm sewers.
