The ACUA is excited to offer our 2nd Backyard Composter and Rain Barrel Sale, open to anyone in New Jersey! The pickup date is Saturday, April 17th, 2021 (must pre-order on-line by April 15th.) Happy Composting!
Conserve municipal water supply and cut household water bills by up to 40% with backyard rain barrels. Rain water, free from chlorine and water treatment chemicals, is an excellent water source for lawns, plants and gardens. Our 55 gallon barrels comes with an overflow hose and spigot and features a fine mesh lid to keep debris from getting in and mosquitos from getting out.
Organic waste comprises 30 percent of the household trash going into landfills and incinerators, where it has no chance to decompose and offers very little BTU value. Homeowners who compost not only extend the life of our landfills and reduce the cost of collecting household garbage, but also recycle the nutrients in organic waste to create a valuable soil amendment for their gardens.

There are several environmental benefits associated with rain barrels. Foremost, rain barrels reduce storm water runoff, this is water that does not soak in to the ground and can transport many pollutants to our local waterways. By using harvested rainwater for watering lawns, gardens, 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 tap water, which has chlorine and fluoride in it. With a rain barrel, gardeners can minimize or eliminate their use of chemical fertilizers.
Pick up will take place on Saturday April 17th from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
