Pilot compost program cancelled

Here’s evidence that East River was poised to participate in the city’s pilot composting program … fresh brown paint to mark where the brown food waste bins should have been placed next to the familiar blue recycling bins:


While our coop decided not to participate — even though separating out food waste can cut down on pests and foul smells — there is now a good composting option in the neighborhood: drop your food waste off at the corner of Grand and Clinton every Monday and Friday from 8:00 to 11:00 am, courtesy of LESEC and NYC.
