You can get information about composting from the Department of Sanitation (DSNY).
DSNY also funds and manages the NYC Compost Project, which offers compost-related workshops and classes throughout the five boroughs. The Project also runs neighborhood-based food scrap drop-off opportunities, ensuring that those food scraps are composted locally.
Learn about composting resources through DSNY.
