Auburn Awarded Grant for Compost Bins

by | Jun 11, 2014

The Solid Waste Advisory Committee secured a state grant to offer compost bins at a reduced cost for Town residents.  The “Earth Machine” compost bins are available for $55.00 at the Auburn Board of Health.

The same model retails for considerably more at local stores.  In addition, small kitchen food scrap collection buckets are available for $10 each.  Informational brochures will be provided with the purchase of the bins.  The Auburn Cable Access channel will be airing a composting demonstration video during the next month.

For more information, please contact the Auburn Board of Health at (508) 832-7703 or Amy Sullivan at
