Hudson River Park’s Community Compost Program invites local residents to participate in simple yet effective actions to support sustainability in their neighborhood. Join us for a tour of our W 34 St. composting facility with Park educators and learn how you can support local sustainability!
The Community Compost Program is an initiative designed to help divert NYC’s organic waste from landfills and reduce carbon emissions that harm the environment. Since the Park’s earliest composting efforts in 2015, the Program has grown into a Park-wide operation, turning over 500,000 pounds of food scraps and yard waste into compost each year.
Learn how food scraps and yard waste are processed into nutrient-rich compost that supports healthier plant beds and reduces our carbon footprint.
