Sign-Up for Composting

One of our neighbors next to Marcus Garvey Park writes:

I urge everyone to sign up for curbside composting. Our building enjoyed this great service from November 2018 till March 2020 when the pandemic shut down the program. The DSNY is gearing back up. However they need you you to sign-up for this fantastic program.

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)
  • bones
  • spoiled and expired food
  • food soiled paper (napkins, towels, uncoated plates, bags, trays, boxes)

Yard and Plant Waste including:

  • leaves
  • spent flowers and trimmings
  • small twigs
  • grass clippings

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

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.
