Earth Machine Update

Thank You, Thank You!
Last April, the library took on a community service project to make Earth Machine backyard compost bins available to the public at a competitive and affordable price. Thank you to all who supported the project which we offered in collaboration with the Northeast Resource Recovery Association (NRAA) and East Hampton Public Works. Special thanks to Public Works who accepted delivery of the composters and made them available for pickup.

Project Outcome
We needed to buy Earth Machines in skids of 20. Three units which were not pre-ordered remain unsold; one is the sample you may have seen when visiting the library. If you'd like to purchase one of the unclaimed units, contact the library at 860-267-6621. Cost is $47, first-come, first-served.

Project Continuance
Owing to continuous public interest, the library will re-run 2010's Earth Machine project in 2011. We will, however, launch the project earlier so composters will be ready for pickup on or about Earth Day, April 22, 2011.
