Recycling program helps communities conserve resources

March 18, 2011 By admin

FREDERICK, MD — The Scott Key Center is once again doing its part with Frederick County’s recycling effort by offering water-saving Rain Barrels. In addition, Scott Key Center has a limited supply of newly designed Compost Tumblers.

By collecting rainwater, residents reduce the need for well and tap water for watering lawns and gardens.

Making compost in a tumbler is simple. By recycling items like leaves, paper, egg shells, grass clippings, coffee ground and plant cuttings, you will be creating a rich compost for your garden. It’s also good for the environment.

Developmentally disabled clients at the Scott Key Center convert the barrels into Rain Barrels and Compost Tumblers. The program also helps to provide employment for clients at Scott Key Center.

Scott Key Center Rain Barrels have been displayed and sold at various home and garden shows in the region for the past 3 years. The Compost Tumblers were introduced just this year.
