The NYC Compost Project hosted by Brooklyn Botanic Garden provides compost outreach education to New York City residents, institutions, and businesses. Part of a citywide program created by the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Recycling and Sustainability, the NYC Compost Project helps to reduce waste in NYC and rebuild city soils by giving New Yorkers the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost.

Visit BBG’s Composting Exhibit, located near the Children's Garden, to see a variety of compost bins, organic materials in different stages of decomposition, and signs to explain the composting process.

For more information, call the Compost Hotline at 718‑623‑7290 or email [email protected].
