DESCRIPTION

The Lower East Side Ecology Center’s community compost program began in 1990 at the community garden on East 7th Street, between Avenues B and C.  Since 1994, they have also offered a collection program at the Union Square Greenmarket.  Community participants can drop off their kitchen scraps in both locations. The collected materials are transported to East River Park and processed in the center’s in-vessel composting system. After three months, the finished compost makes its way back to the market, where it is sold either as compost or as part of their potting soil mix.
