Farewell Composting Pilot, hello DSNY composting bins

A fond farewell to the Downtown Alliance composting bin pilot, where the bins collected 105,157 pounds of organic waste over 18 months.

People can drop off their compostable waste in the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Smart Composting Bins, as 11 bin locations are already currently active in Lower Manhattan.

Or if you want something a little less transactional, you can bring compost to the following community dropoff sites:

  • 75 Battery Pl.
  • Battery Park City Authority Rockefeller Park
  • Tribeca Greenmarket (Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.)
