The NYC Compost Project was created by the NYC Department of Sanitation in 1993 to provide compost education and outreach to NYC residents, nonprofit organizations, and businesses. Most of the successful community-based composting operations in NYC have received technical assistance from the NYC Compost Project.
Funded and managed through the Department of Sanitation's Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling, the NYC Compost Project programs are carried out by Department-funded staff at host sites in each borough.
