City Sells Compost To Raise Cash -- On eBay 11-16-2010

The city of Saginaw is hoping to raise some cash by selling a unique commodity on eBay.
The city is auctioning off bulk compost. Unscreened compost is going for $5 per cubic yard and screened for $11.
The auction says winning bidders must provide their own transportation for the smelly product, but the city will load it for you.
The auctions end just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
This isn’t the first time the city has turned to the online auction site for a quick sale.
Two slides from the old Andersen Water Park and items confiscated in police raids have also been sold on eBay in the past year.
