Composting is a practical way to reduce waste, fight climate change, and save money on garbage disposal and garden materials. Composting turns your garden and kitchen waste into “black gold” that improves your soil and feeds your plants. It’s easy and the benefits are great!

Rain barrels collect water from house gutters and the water can be used for gardens and other plantings. The water is chlorine free and life in the soil loves it. Rain barrels can significantly reduce water consumption and save homeowners money. Middletown City Public Works Department and Lower CT River Valley Governing Council work together to help residents save water, reduce waste, and save money!
