Curbside composting is coming back

Curbside Composting is coming back fall 2021 in a new way! The City will collect food scraps, food-soiled paper, and yard waste and turn it into compost or renewable energy. This service is voluntary, and residents must sign up.

The program is open to both 1 and 2-family homes, along with apartment buildings. See map where this service is being offered. Our neighborhoods in Brooklyn will be covered. Service will resume on a rolling basis based on the number of sign ups in your neighborhood. This way the City can ensure there will be enough material set out for our trucks to pick up. The more sign-ups in your area, the quicker service will start!
