Find a bin

Many local hardware stores and garden centres carry a variety of compost bins or you may choose to build your own bin. Building a bin doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult – there are many compost bin plans out there – some are very simple and some are more involved. Check out these compost bin plans from MUN Botanical Garden.

Municipal Backyard Compost Bin Program

Is your municipality offering compost bins at a reduced rate?

Through the Compost Bin Distribution Program, MMSB partners with municipalities from across the province to offer compost bins to residents at a reduced cost. Participating communities host free Learn to Compost information sessions to help residents learn to properly maintain the bin.  The program encourages communities to provide residents with the knowledge and tools needed to start composting.
