MAY 14, 2005 -- Many came out to learn how to help the environment on Saturday. New Hanover County sponsored a Compost Recycling and Rain Barrel Day.
Organizers showed different ways in which people could turn food waste into compost for their gardens.
Rain barrels were also on sale, which can be used to recycle rain water for use in the gardens.
Electronic equipment was taken to be recycled at no charge.
