Volunteer with one of New York City’s oldest community composting programs! The Lower East Side Ecology Center in partnership with the NYC Compost Project diverts over 450 tons of food scraps from landfills annually. Food scraps are collected locally and then processed into compost at the East River Park Compost Yard. The finished compost is then used for community greening projects to revitalize tree beds and soils across the city.
The Ecology Center and the NYC Compost Project currently seek volunteers to participate in their Compost Volunteer Workday on the Last Thursday of every month from 1-3PM. Work gloves will be provided.
