Community Composting Report, 2014

In 2013, New York City Council passed Local Law 77, which requires the DSNY Commissioner to establish a voluntary curbside collection pilot for residential organic waste and a school organic waste collection pilot. As part of Local Law 77, the DSNY Commissioner is required to conduct a study on how to improve community composting in NYC and submit the fi¬ndings to the Mayor and the Council.
