The NYC Compost Project, created by the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) in 1993, works to reduce waste in NYC and rebuild NYC’s soil by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost locally. NYC Compost Project programs and staff are funded and managed through the DSNY Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability (BRS) in partnership with host institutions.
This program is made possible in part with funding provided by the New York City Council through A Greener NYC, a program of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Snug Harbor thanks the Staten Island City Council Delegation for their generous allocations.
This program is also made possible in part with funding provided by the NYC Service Civic Impact capacity building grant.
