Join the New York City Department of Sanitation to learn more about composting and how your food scraps and yard waste are turned into finished compost!

We have built the largest curbside composting program in the country.
That's a huge success, one that gives us all great pride.

We want to continue to grow participation so that we can keep food scraps and yard waste out of landfills, cut long-distance transportation, keep methane from our air, and Make Compost, Not Trash.


Learn more about composting and
beautify your neighborhood!


Join the campaign by volunteering, inviting DSNY to your next community event, or scheduling a new one with us!
