Welcome to Greenmount Compost Factory!
Greenmount Compost Factory (GCF) is a community-level composting program of The 6th Branch, located just south of historic Greenmount Cemetery in East Baltimore's Johnston Square community. Our GCF program is designed with the following three goals in mind: (1) to help improve local soil quality, (2) to help divert volume from the traditional waste stream, and (3) to help build community wealth in Johnston Square. 50% of the revenue generated through our GCF program is shared with our gracious hosts, the Re-Build Johnston Square Neighborhood Organization.
Greenmount Compost Factory is a membership-based social enterprise offering competitively-priced Pickup and Dropoff household memberships. Let's make sure the right membership is for you! (If you already have a NEON Account please sign in here.)
Pickup Membership ($25/month): If you live in Southeast, East, or Northeast Baltimore, then you qualify to participate as a GCF Pickup member. Once you're set up, just place your GCF compost bucket full of compostable materials out in front of your house, just like your trash and recycling, and we'll come swap it out for a fresh, clean one.
Dropoff Membership ($10/month): Regardless of where you live, you can sign up to become a Dropoff member today! Once you've received your materials, you'll be free to visit our lovely GCF facility at your convenience to drop off your bucket full of compostables and take a new one with you.
Johnston Square Neighbors: If you live within the bounds of the Johnston Square neighborhood (Hoffman Street to the north, Eager Street to the south, Harford Road to the east, and Fallsway to the west) then your first year of GCF membership is complimentary and you'll participate as a Pickup member during that first year!
Once you're signed up, our master composters will reach out to you about getting your new composting materials to you as soon as possible!
*Greenmount Compost Factory also offers a five-tiered commercial pricing plan for local businesses to participate to their desired extent. Please e-mail our team if you'd like to sign your business up as a GCF commercial member!
