Whether you’re an avid gardener or just looking to cut back on the waste you produce, Beaufort County has a deal for you.
As part of a grant-funded project from the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control, the county’s Public Works Department’s Solid Waste and Recycling Section is selling compost bins for $50 — less than half of what they typically cost.
The 96-gallon bins typically sell for $109, according to a county news release, but have been discounted to promote “the many benefits of composting, including waste reduction and soil enrichment.”
The bins have a 10-year warranty, do not require tools for assembly and fit into most cars for transport home.
Beaufort-area residents can order a bin by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bluffton-area residents should email email@example.com.
The pickup date and location will be emailed to you with the confirmation of your purchase. Training and educational materials about composting will be available.
The bins are made from recycled material, cut down on home waste and produce fertilizer for gardens — meaning gardeners can save money by making their own compost.
