If you are a landscaper or tree service company, you can apply for a Composting Site Permit to discard yard waste and purchase finished compost. The permit is a plastic, wallet-sized card that states the account and permit numbers.
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 Composting Site Permit Program.
