    2. Compost at home or in your community.

Zero Waste
Learn More

    There’s no “away” when we throw garbage into a can or litter basket.

    Trash goes into landfills, where it decomposes – sending methane, carbon dioxide and toxins into our air, soil and water.

    0X30 minimizes this: By contributing zero waste to landfills by 2030, New Yorkers will be protecting our environment more than ever before.

Report Illegal Dumping
More Info

    Have you witnessed someone transporting garbage in a vehicle, and dumping the material in the street, or in a park or lot?

    You can report illegal dumping by using our Illegal Dumping Affidavit or Illegal Dumping Tips Form, available by clicking here. You may be eligible for a reward.
