In 2017 the City of Fayetteville passed a resolution to get Fayetteville on a path to 40% waste diversion by 2027. Consumer waste reduction, recycling, and composting are all key steps towards meeting this goal. Thanks to a grant from Boston Mountain Solid Waste District, the City of Fayetteville is making available for purchase discounted backyard composting bins. This will help residents reduce waste, protect the environment, and grow healthy plants.

Why Use a Rain Barrel?

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
