Sift and Bag Compost: Volunteer Day

At the Sift and Bag Compost: Volunteer Day, learn how to properly sift finished compost so it is ready to add to our soil. After the compost is sifted, you’ll help bag the compost into one-pound bags for giveaways at our Food Scrap Drop-Off sites across Staten Island. Bring home a bag of sifter compost to use at home!

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.
