Many of you may have noticed the beautiful new lids covering our compost bins. That make-over is thanks to the hard work of Jim Taylor, our fix-it man extraordinaire. Designing new lids was no easy task. They need to be light-weight, easy to lift from the arena side, weather resistant and portable so that they could be removed when the bins are emptied. Jim was definitely up to the challenge, and with the help of Larry Arnold from San Leandro Auto Upholstery, came up with the sturdy canvas design. We had a number of very happy muckers when they discovered they no longer had to deal with the old lids that were awkward, heavy and falling apart. A big thank you to both Jim and Larry for making merry muckers!
