Why Compost?

The Town of Bethlehem is excited to be offering this bulk composter sale, with educational support from Albany County Cooperative Extension. The goal of the program is to divert food scraps from the waste stream (up to 30% or more by weight is comprised of food scraps and compostable soiled paper and cardboard), and raise the awareness regarding the benefits of compost, which include improving or maintaining high quality soil, growing healthy plants, reducing the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improving water quality and protecting the environment. By adding compost you can conserve water and help improve soil to help hold water in the root zone.

"Composting significantly reduces landfill waste and addresses climate change, enriches the soil, holds soil moisture and saves water. It also helps prevent erosion, suppresses weed growth, reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, and offers other benefits. Healthy soils grow healthy food and plants!"

Why Use a Rain Barrel?

Why Compost

There are several environmental benefits associated with rain barrels. Rain barrels reduce storm water runoff, water that does not soak into the ground and can transport many pollutants to our local waterways as well as cause erosion. By collecting rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, and potted plants and for washing off patio furniture and tools, rain barrels conserve water. From a gardening perspective, the natural nutrients in rain water make it far better than city tap water, which contains chlorine and fluoride. With a rain barrel, gardeners can minimize or eliminate their use of chemical fertilizers.

Rain barrel water should not be used to drink or bathe. And rain barrels should be emptied and stored throughout the winter months.
