Lobster Trap Compost Bin Program

Lobster Trap Compost Bins

Tired of throwing your food scraps in the trash?

Get a free backyard composter and kitchen food scraps pail for you to compost at home. Composting is the process of turning kitchen and yard waste into usable, nutrient-rich soil through natural decomposition.

Keep in mind:

  • This service is for residents and property owners within the Town of Kennebunkport limits.  These bins are delivered and provided free of charge from a MaineDEP Waste Reduction Grant.  We ask composters to estimate and log the amount of food scraps they compost based on the use of the kitchen food scraps pail (2 gallons).

  • The Lobster Trap Compost Bin remains the property of the Town of Kennebunkport. It can stay with a new resident if you move and the resident wishes to home compost. Call and let us know if you move or no long wish to home compost so we can come pick-up the composter.

Kennebunkport Lobster Trap Compost Bin Application and Composting Guide are below.  Applications can be dropped off at the Town Office at 6 Elm Street or emailed to: nevangelista@kennebunkportme.gov.
