The Aquarion Water Company will be sponsoring a rain barrel sale.  Distribution will be in the Trumbull Town Hall parking lot on Saturday, June 1,  between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Each barrel is $75.

Compost bins will be available while supplies last. Trumbull residents can purchase compost bins and green cone digesters "at prices far below retail costs."

"Composting and digesting are great ways to help the environment by reducing waste and avoiding high garbage disposal fees," according to town officials.

Residents can purchase a backyard Garden Gourmet Compost Bin for $30 and a Green Cone Digester for $50. The digesters reduce all organic household waste, including meat and bones, but no compost is generated. Some assembly is required for both types of containers.

Pre-ordering and pre-payment is required and is available only to Trumbull residents.

For more information, call or email Robin Bennett at 203-452-5056 or rbennett@trumbull-ct.gov. Pick-up is on Saturday, April 6, from 9 a.m.  to 2 p.m. at the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center located at 7115 Main Street in Trumbull.
