Choose the Right Bin for You (NYC Compost Project)

There are many ways to compost, and many types of compost bins: big bins, small bins, short bins, tall bins! Does it need to have a lid? Can I keep it by my house? Can I make my own?  You have questions. We have answers.

The NYC Compost Project, created by the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1993, works to rebuild NYC’s soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to make and use compost locally. NYC Compost Project programs are implemented by DSNY-funded teams at seven host organizations, including Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Big Reuse, Earth Matter NY, Lower East Side Ecology Center, Queens Botanical Garden, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden, and The New York Botanical Garden.
