Alert: Composter/Rain Barrel Sale April 24!

It's that time of year again: Baltimore County has announced their annual Composter sale. Hosted again on the parking lot of IKEA at White Marsh Mall, this year's sale will be on April 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine.

Baltimore County will once again sell the Earth Machine composter. These composters are valued at $80 but will sell for $35 plus tax!

We're very excited to share the news that this year Baltimore County is introducing the sale of 55-gallon Systern rain barrels. The Systern rain barrel has a mosquito mesh and comes with installation instructions, spigot, screws, and an overflow hose. Valued at $90, the rain barrels will sell for $45. This is a first come, first served, so arrive early.

The sale will be a joint effort hosted by Baltimore County’s Department of Public Works (DPW), Bureau of Solid Waste Management and the Department of Environmental Protection and Resource Management (DEPRM). For more information on this event and home composting in general, visit the Bureau of Solid Waste Management web site at or call 410-887-2000.
