Purchasing Power

Join the Compost Bin Group Purchase Program 

Recycling Connections coordinates an annual ‘bulk’ purchase of the Home Composter™ compost bins on behalf of municipalities, organizations or groups interested in selling compost bins as a way to promote backyard composting and assist with climate or other sustainability goals. The Home Composter™ is only available through non-profit/municipal organizations, it is not sold at retail stores. The base price for each bin depends on the total group order. For 2022 bin costs are between $50-$55. This is a slight increase in pricing due to material costs from the manufacturer. 

Recycling Connections offers over 20 years of experience in organizing community compost bin sales and this group purchase program. As part of the program, participants receive support materials for local sales, including templates for flyers, ads, news releases, and tips for delivering your community program during COVID-19. There will be a few free webinars Recycling Connections will provide that can be shared with your community and customers. You set your own bin sale price to help you meet your community goals, divert more waste, and reduce impact on landfills.
