Corey Johnson Council Member, District 3: Composting Sites

(NYC COUNCIL) Speaker Corey Johnson, October 11, 2020

Dear friend,

Taking care of our environment is more important than ever.

I am proud the New York City Council worked to restore funding for community composting. Reducing the amount of waste we send to landfills is a key part of our fight against climate change.

In Council District 3, I have made it a priority to create more composting opportunities where New Yorkers can drop off their organic food scraps.

Please see below for a list of current locations where you can drop off your organic food scraps in Council District 3:

The Hudson River Park Trust organic drop-off sites:
All sites open from 7AM-7PM daily
• Pier 96 (West 55th Street)
• Pier 84 (West 44th Street)
• HRPK’s Compost Center (West 34th Street)
• Pier 66 (West 23rd Street)
• Chelsea Waterside Park (West 23rd Street)
• 14th Street Park (West 14th Street)
• Pier 51 (Horatio Street)
• Pier 46 (Perry Street)
• Pier 40 (Morton Street)

Lower East Side Ecology Center organic drop-off sites:
All sites open from 9AM-2PM on Wednesdays
• West 23rd and Eighth Avenue
• Christopher Park
• Spring Street and Sixth Avenue
• Mathews-Palmer Playground (West 45th Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues — Coming Soon!)

Grow NYC organic drop-off sites:
Saturdays from 8AM-2PM
• Abingdon Square Greenmarket
(West 12th Street and Eighth Avenue)
Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat from 8AM-5PM

I encourage all New Yorkers to separate their organic waste and utilize the newly re-opened drop off sites as the Council continues the fight to fund and implement strategies to fight climate change.
