Organics Collection Program

The City has introduced a new organics collection service which allows the Department of Sanitation to collect food and yard waste from residents and turn it into valuable compost or renewable energy.

Participants will receive starter kits which include:

  • A brown organics bin
  • A small kitchen container

Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island:

Organics are collected weekly on your scheduled recycling day. 


Organics are collected twice a week on your scheduled garbage collection day.
