Due to increased demand, Boise Public Works and Allied Waste are again selling compost bins.
"We sold more than 1,000 compost bins (last spring)," said Solid Waste Programs manager Catherine Chertudi. "Our free composting classes were full, and we continue to get calls asking if we are selling composting bins."
Public Works is taking pre-orders for a limited amount (150) of the so-called "earth machines" at a price of $42.05.
The city will also launch a series of evening composting classes on Aug. 1 at the Main Library, Aug. 9 at the Cole and Ustick Library, and Sept. 7 at the Collister Library.
