DSNY Compost Request

Distributions are currently closed for the 2017 season. Check back at nyc.gov/getcompost for updates on next season’s distribution schedule.

Please use this form to request pallet-loads of free compost for NYC street trees, community gardens or public greening initiatives. This program provides bagged compost for New Yorkers to use within New York City. (Requests for compost for use outside the five boroughs will not be accepted.)

After your request is received, DSNY will contact you to schedule a delivery date. In the “delivery notes” section, make sure to provide any information about your site that may impact delivery services, including parking and traffic regulations, street width, etc.

If you need fewer than 60 bags (one pallet), find out how to get compost
