$50 Compost Bin Rebate*


*CITY OF COLUMBUS RESIDENTS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THE FOLLOWING $50 COMPOST BIN REBATE (INCLUDING TUMBLERS). THE ONLY COMPOST BIN REBATE CITY OF COLUMBUS RESIDENTS CAN RECEIVE IS THE DISCOUNTED SWACO ON-THE-GROUND COMPOST BIN (SEE ABOVE). 

If eligible, only compost bins that are an "enclosed bin", pre-fabricated unit meant for outdoor use or vermi-composters/worm bins will be reimbursed if you are eligible for the $50 compost bin rebate. This will typically include tumblers, on-ground units and vermi-composters. Reimbursements will NOT be applied to indoor composting units like counter top compost pails, DIY/homemade bins, or home-composting services such as The Compost Exchange. All compost bins must be totally enclosed and therefore rodent-proof in order to receive reimbursement!
