NYC Compost Project programs are carried out by Department-funded staff at host sites in each borough. NYC Compost Project sites provide tours of home and community scale composting operations.
NYC Compost Project sites housed at the botanical gardens and the Lower East Side Ecology Center offer compost-related workshops and classes for residents, teachers, landscapers, and other interested parties. They also provide technical support for community compost sites and offer low-cost compost bins for NYC residents.
NYC Compost Project sites housed with community-based non-profits operate neighborhood-based food scrap drop-off opportunities, and ensure that those food scraps are composted locally.
All NYC Compost staff and volunteers regularly disseminate composting and recycling information at thousands of community events, and offer compost bins for sale to NYC residents.
