2019 Composting Bin 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 $25. Out-of-town residents are also welcome to purchase a bin for only $33.
These bins (seen here: are usually priced at $100+ and are small Compost Bin_BackyardBin_GreenTeamofNewMarketMD_FILEenough 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 of New Market at:
Once you e-mail, the Green Team members will add you to the list to reserve your compost bin. Pick-up dates and times will be arranged at Town Hall once enough requests have been recorded. You will be notified via e-mail and will be posted on FB @ GreenTeamNewMarket
