The city of Middleton said the compost bin/rain barrel sale held on Saturday at the Middleton Public Works Garage was a success.
The sale ran from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and organizers said that by 7 a.m., residents were already lined up to purchase items.
There were 200 compost bins, 60 rain barrels, 50 kitchen compost buckets and 50 compost turners available for sale, according to Abby Attoun, associate planner.
Attoun said people were allowed to line up at the cash table at 8:30 a.m. and soon after the sale began at 9 a.m., all of the rain barrels were sold.
The kitchen compost buckets and compost turners sold out by 9:45 a.m. At the end of the day, everything was sold with the exception of 70 compost bins, organizers said.
Attoun said if the event is held again next year, they will plan to have more rain barrels and accessories available.
Attoun also thanked the volunteers who helped with the event.
