Composting Operations

Share/Bookmark

NYC Department of Sanitation composts (or turns into mulch) fallen trees, landscaper waste, and Christmas trees at outdoor composting sites. The high-quality compost and mulch created at these sites goes to various parks and community gardens. DSNY also operates a food waste composting facility at Rikers Island.

NYC is also home to many community-based composting operations that have received technical composting assistance from the NYC Compost Project.

DSNY also runs various drop-off programs to provide NYC residents with a wider range of food scrap drop-off opportunities and to ensure that those food scraps are composted locally.
