If you are a landscaper or tree service company, you can apply for a Compost Site Permit to discard yard waste and purchase finished compost. 

The Department of Sanitation operates a yard waste composting site at the Staten Island Compost Facility. This site receives leaf and yard waste from landscapers registered with the Compost Site Permit Program. The site also accepts yard waste materials from Asian Long-Horned Beetle quarantine areas.
