COMMUNITY COMPOST BIN

As part of the Baltimore Comprehensive Composting Pilot in partnership with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Maryland – Baltimore, we are pleased to offer an on-campus community compost drop-off site along York Road, accessible 24-7!
