Don’t Miss this Fantastic, Bombastic, Once-in-a-Lifetime-Year Opportunity

Do you enjoy saving money and love composting? Then holy moly have I got a deal for you!

Next Saturday, May 8th we are hosting our annual Compost Bin Sale at Cincinnati State and Princeton High School from 9-2. I’m especially excited because if we’re successful, hundreds of residents will purchase a bin and become brand new composters! Each compost bin leaving the event means a potential 600 pounds of food and yard waste diverted from the landfill every year! I get all warm and fuzzy inside just thinking of all the environmental benefits.

Super Duper Discounted Deal
We’ll be selling the Earth Machine Compost Bin for not $100, not even $50, but an unbelievable $35! We’ll also have nifty accessories like compost turners and kitchen collection pails. The bins are available on a first come, first served basis so ACT NOW! (well not really "now" more like the morning of Saturday, May 8th).

And We’ll Throw in Expert Advice for Free!
This year we are not only selling deeply discounted compost bins and cool accessories. We will have a special compost demonstration area with Master Composters answering questions, several types of bins on display, and regular presentations. Wow, what a deal!

But Wait, There’s More!
We will also be giving away free “I heart compost” car bumper magnets to the first 500 people who stop by! No purchase necessary! You just have to be crazy enough about composting to show us some love and stop by the event.

Before I come down from my iced caffeinated beverage high (which apparently makes me think I'm writing an infomercial), I want to encourage you to share your love for composting by spreading the word about the sale. Tell your mother, brother, second cousin, and best friends from grade school. You can invite people through Facebook or just send them the link below. This deal only comes once a year, so don’t miss out!


  1. Michelle,

    Do you have to be a Hamilton county resident in order to buy bins at this sale?

  2. The sale is intended for Hamilton County residents but we will not be requiring identification. Clermont County usually has a compost bin sale as well if you live there. Contact the Clermont County Soil and Water Conservation District.

  3. Would have been nice if they organized it better. I got there at 9:15 and the line was 500 people deep.

  4. We did receive an overwhelming response! In total 1,862 compost bins were sold. Unfortunately, there is no way to predict how many people will show up but next year I think we will try to set up more than two lines to pay for the bins, that might speed things along. Thanks to everyone who stuck it out and waited in line for your bin!!!
