Police Alert: Please be mindful to lock your vehiclesPlease be aware that there have been a string of robberies as of late. Try and remove valuables from your vehicle when possible, and to always leave your vehicle locked. Below is a Channel 6ABC news story related to these thefts:
Compost Bins Are Available> Falls Township currently has 80-gallon Earth Machine Compost Bins available for purchase for $45 at the Municipal building
The Earth Machine is a durable backyard compost bin designed to compost food and yard waste, effectively diverting it from landfills. The resulting compost can be used in lawns and gardens to provide much needed nutrients, while helping to retain moisture in the soil.
Using compost on your gardens returns organic material back into the natural cycle and promotes a healthy soil ecosystem. The result is significantly higher yields, with a substantial reduction in soil erosion.
The Earth Machine is designed for easy, passive composting - just start filling the bin, water, and occasionally stir or poke. The finished compost is ready in four to six months. According to the EPA, one person generates an average of approximately 1.35 pounds of organic waste per day. That equals almost 500 pounds per person every year. Backyard composting is an effective way of recycling organic wastes such as leaves, grass and food scraps that are generated at home and usually put out to the curb for disposal.
For additional information, please contact the Falls Township Finance Department at 215-949-9000.
