Organics Expansion
We're Expanding!

    The New York City Department of Sanitation is again expanding the NYC Organics voluntary curbside food and yard waste recycling program, adding additional neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens this fall. The program offers New Yorkers an easy way to recycle their organic waste, including food, food-soiled paper, and yard debris.

    To help residents dispose of harmful household products safely, DSNY hosts SAFE Disposal Events in all five boroughs.

    Events are held, rain or shine, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Only NYC residential waste is accepted at SAFE Disposal Events, and no commercial vehicles are allowed. Residents must provide proof of NYC residency, such as a NYS driver’s license or utility bill.
