New York City's pilot composting program is underway. Starting in Windsor Terrace, it's now making its way through Park Slope.
Under the two-year program run by the city's sanitation department, neighborhood locals will leave any organic waste such as food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard trimmings on the curb for city pickup, and the sanitation department will compost the waste to make fertilizer for community gardens, school yards and parks. Residential buildings began receiving free starter kit from the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) with a brown bin and a small kitchen container at the end of September.
