2018 New Market Composting Program

It’s almost spring, so that means it’s the perfect time to start composting in your home! Through their Residential Composting Initiative, which launched in 2017, the Town of New Market is offering residents high-quality backyard compost bins for only $20. Out-of-town residents are also welcome to purchase a bin for only $28. These bins (seen here: are usually priced at $80-$100, and are small enough not to be obtrusive, but large enough to contain even a year’s worth of food and yard scraps! Composting is a wonderful and easy way to reduce waste and put organic material back into the land! If you would like to request a bin, just e-mail The Green Team, Green Team Member, Michelle Corpora
at to be added to the list.
Pick-up dates and times will be arranged once enough requests have been recorded.
