For those compost-curious, DSNY’s program will accept – keeping this out of landfill
ALL FOOD WASTE including:
coffee grounds and tea bags
shells (seafood, nut, and egg)

Sign-up is now open! If you are in an eligible neighborhood, we will notify you when service will start in your area. If you do not live in an area where the service is yet offered, we will let you know about opportunities to bring your food scraps to a drop-off location or how to compost at home (and will let you know if service is expanding to your area!).
We want to hear from everyone interested in Curbside Composting as it helps us make the case to expand this service to more neighborhoods.
White Park – 106/Lex – has a great basketball mural facing the courts.
Cesar Fantauzzi became the most prominent player in Spanish Harlem, where he earned his nickname “Spanish Doc” after capturing a jump shot attempt in midair. Fantauzzi entered the BSN with the Atléticos de San Germán earning a reputation as a power dunker and shot blocker, eventually following the footsteps of the other prominent Nuyoricans into the national basketball team.
