The average New York City household throws out over two pounds of food waste per day. Learn to compost.

CompostingComposting is nature's way of recycling. The Ecology Center's composting programs reduce waste and ensure that organic materials are returned to the earth through our community compost program, do-it-yourself composting kits, and locally-made compost and potting soil. In addition we offer the NYC Compost Project in Manhattan, a compost education program, for New York City residents.
