Kelowna Daily Courier – March 3, 2020
Used in tandem, a backyard composter, green-cone food digester and rain barrel can help you cut your garbage in half and save water.
To help you get started on this road to conservation, the Waste Reduction Office of the Central Okanagan regional district is selling limited numbers of new composters, digesters and barrels at discounted prices until the end of the month.
It’s a pre-order sale, which means you need to order and pay by March 31 at RDCO.com/ComposterSale and then pick up your composter, digester and rain barrel at one of the five designated locations in April and May.
The regional district is expecting a sellout because of the limited quantities and bargain prices, so people are urged to order early.
For instance, only 300 backyard composters are for sale for $35 each, which is a substantial savings from the regular retail price of $80.
There’s a limit of two composter purchases per household.
There’s also a two-per-household limit for the 200 rain barrels being sold, which are priced at $78 (regularly $120 retail).
