Bins come in two styles

Two styles of compost bins are available through MassDEP's grant program: Earth Machine and New Age Composter (formerly Brave New Composter). Both types are easy to assemble, rodent-resistent, and allow for efficient, aerobic composting. They are made from a minimum of 50 percent post-consumer recycled plastic collected or processed in Massachusetts. 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
