Utilities Hosts Compost Bin Sale in Conjunction with 18th Annual Xeriscape Garden Party

Posted on: May-09-2019

To help reduce landfill waste and support healthy local soils, Fort Collins Utilities is sponsoring a sale of backyard compost bins and accessories. Composting can save money on trash bills, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, grow healthy plants and help landscapes use less water.

Visit https://fortcollinscompostersale.ecwid.com/">fcgov.com/compost-sale to view the selection and place an order. Availability is limited, and the deadline to order is May 31.

All orders must be picked up Saturday, June 15, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., City Hall north parking lot (off Maple Street). The Xeriscape Garden Party begins next door in the south parking lot at 11 a.m. and will host expert presentations on best composting practices. Residents will learn where to place bins, what to add and how to use the finished compost.

The Xeriscape Garden Party is a celebration of the art of landscaping, with a focus on conserving water. The event features expert advice, live music, food trucks, demonstrations, interactive activities and prizes.
