NYLPI Celebrates the Re-Opening of Food Scrap Recycling Sites

After NYLPI and the Save Our Compost coalition restored $2.9 million for food scrap recycling in the City budget (a mere 10% of the 2019 allocation), community food scrap drop-off sites are gradually reopening.

We’re celebrating the reopening of the huge Union Square Greenmarket dropoff site on August 1, and a number of other sites around the City that you can find in this tracker and use to safely recycle your home’s food scraps.

For perspective on what’s needed to put NYC back on track to becoming a Zero Waste City, we recommend this article by Danielle Muoio of Politico and this recent piece in AM New York on how our partner the Lower East Side Ecology Center is bringing composting back to the public, little by little.
