DSNY’s Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling (BWPRR) launched the NYC Compost Project Local Organics Recovery Program (ORP) in the spring of 2012 to provide NYC residents with a wider range of food scrap drop-off opportunities and to ensure that those food scraps were composted locally.
The NYC Compost Project Local Organics Recovery Program (LORP) currently involves BIG!Compost , Earth Matter NY , and the Lower East Side Ecology Center .
The chart below lists compost sites managed by the NYC Compost Project Local Organics Recovery Program (LORP). At these compost sites, ORP staff process organic materials that residents have dropped off at the food scrap drop-off locations listed.
