NYC Organics is Growing
NYC Organics

    This year our food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard waste curbside collection program will be made available to more than two million additional city residents. The program began as a pilot for 3,200 residents in spring 2013 and is already available to nearly one million residents citywide.

    After collection, the material is turned into usable compost or renewable energy.
