How’d they do it? Decentralized Urban Composting

January 9, 2018

The NYC Compost Project Hosted by Big Reuse is a program funded by the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), which features a community composting facility, located under the Queensboro Bridge in Long Island City, New York.  The compost facility is part of a community-scale composting network. The finished compost is used in community gardens, street trees, and other public greening projects.
