Now anyone can save water to reuse in gardens or flower beds and reuse table scraps and yard waste in your very own rain barrel and compost bin. 

Both are made from 100% recycled materials and come in black. Rain barrels hold 45 gallons of rain water, and are sold for $79 plus tax. Compost bins are 125 gallons and sold for $66 plus tax.

Rain barrels and composters are on sale now and must be pre-ordered online. Visit for more information and to place an order. Orders will only be available for pick up on May 15 from 9-11 a.m. at the Chisago County Public Works, 31325 Oasis Ave, Center City.

This program is hosted through the Chisago County Environmental Services/Zoning and Parks Department and the Chisago Soil & Water Conservation District.
