NYC Department of Sanitation Greenmarket Collections

Food scraps constitute about 17.7%, approximately 650,000 tons annually, of the total NYC DSNY-managed waste stream. The NYC Department of Sanitation manages a portion of that organic material by collecting food waste dropped off at select GrowNYC Greenmarkets. leaving NYCWasteLess.

This program is a partnership between the City of New York, the NYC Department of SanitationGrowNYC leaving NYCWasteLess, the NYC Compost Project Local Organics Recovery Program, the Lower East Side Ecology Center leaving NYCWasteLess, and a range of other community partners.
