Compost Bin Voucher Program Application

The City of San Diego has partnered with Dixieline Lumber and Home Center to offer compost bins at a discounted rate. Upon qualification, vouchers will be emailed within 2-4 weeks. To qualify, the applicant must be a City of San Diego resident and will receive one voucher per household. The Compost Bin Voucher Program is only for residential backyard use. We are not accepting applications from schools, non-profit organizations, businesses or other entities.

NOTICE: Please be advised that our program vendor, Dixieline Lumber & Home Center, is experiencing delays in compost bin shipments from suppliers. Worm bin vouchers are temporarily unavailable due to local Dixieline store inventory delays. Applicants will be placed on a waitlist until worm bins are available again.

If the worm bin is selected, an additional voucher will be provided; good for 1 pound of red wiggler worms. Residents are responsible for the shipping cost of worms.
