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 There is a slight increase in pricing due to labor costs from the manufacturer, but pricing should be around $50-$55/bin. 

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. 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.

Partnering Community Testimonial

“Our expanded Backyard Composting Program with bins from Recycling Connections has been a huge success! Participants are self-reporting the number of pails they fill, and so far we are at over 11,000 pails of food scraps collected and put in compost bins! Hard to tell for sure, but we estimate this to be about 40,000 pounds kept out of the garbage.

Thank you for your working in making these kinds of programs possible – it is so fun to be able to tell residents that they are part of making a BIG impact!”
