Cornell Cooperative Extension Cayuga County is excited to offer our residents a great deal on North America's #1 selling backyard compost bin. Thanks to a grant from NUCOR, we can offer the first 45 Cayuga County residents an additional $20 off the already discounted price of  $59.95 (which is still 40% off retail price) for a total cost of $39.95.  Preorder your Earth Machine now, Limit 1 bin per household. This program is only offered to residents of CAYUGA COUNTY.

NOTE: there are still 35 bins available at a special discounted price of $39.95 as of 5/1/17/2024.  When those are gone, the price will revert to $59.95 (40% off retail price).  A 3rd party vendor is managing the sales website and we were misinformed on the status of the bin stock.  We apologize for the confusion.

About the Bin:

The Earth Machine Compost Bin has an 80 gallon capacity and is made with 50% recycled plastic and provides a convenient way to keep food and  yard waste out of the waste stream. This is North America's #1 selling backyard compost bin because it features snap-together construction, an off-set retrieval door, 4 anchor pegs to secure the unit to the ground, a locking lid "how-to guide" and the "Rottwheeler" educational dial. The Earth Machine retails for $100.00
