Compost Bins

An average household can compost between 500 and 1,000 pounds of organic material each year in the bins, producing a rich soil supplement out of material that would otherwise be disposed.

The bins pictured above, which retail for $70-120, are available to residents of grantee communities for $25-$45, thanks to assistance from MassDEP. Some towns have one style, others have both.
