New for 2019
Pre-order Compost Bins and Rainwater Barrels

HHNM has collaborated with the Orange County Division of Environmental Facilities and Services (DEFS) to sell compost bins and rainwater barrels for reduced prices. Pre-ordered compost bins and rainwater barrels will be distributed at our Earth Day Celebration on Saturday, April 27 from 11 AM to 3 PM. The goal of the collaboration is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of reducing solid waste sent to the landfill as well as using compost to improve or maintain high quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment.

Pre-orders of bins, barrels and other compost related items can be below:

The deadline for pre-orders is Friday, April 25 th . Pre-orders must be conducted online. Only a limited number of sales and transactions will occur on the day of the event. All orders must be picked up on the day of the distribution event (4/27). Any orders not collected by the end of the event will be temporarily held (2 weeks) and donated to local non-profit organizations, charities, and/or schools if not claimed.
