County’s recent backyard composter and rainbarrel sale days a success

On, May 23, hundreds of County residents attended the Solid Waste Ser­vices backyard composter and rain barrel truckload sale held in 3 locations across the county.

The weather was great and spirits were high as residents scooped up 1,000 backyard composters and over 1,500 rain barrels. 

Those residents who were disappointed because the com­posters were sold out by late morning can pick up a com­poster at the county’s regular price of $30 at any of the seven waste facilities. Composters will be available the week of June 8. For facility locations and hours of operation, visit the county’s website www.­ or phone (519) 837-2601 or 1-866-899-0248.

Solid Waste Services staff thanked everyone for making the truckload sale a huge success.
