*Domino Park’s in-vessel composter efficiently turns food scraps and park plant material into compost in as little as two weeks. Due to this method, some compostable items cannot be processed.
Consider making your drop-off zero waste – bring your food scraps in a reusable bucket.
All of the compost generated through this program is used at Domino Park and/or redistributed to the North Brooklyn community free of charge. If you are interested in taking some compost – or know of a park, community garden, organization that could use some -- please let the staff member at the drop-off table know.
In these challenging times, the well-being of our community is of the utmost importance.
Please follow the guidance of the NYC Department of Health:
- Wear a face covering
- Stay home if you feel sick
- Wash your hand frequently
- Keep 6’ away from others
Domino Park started this public-facing initiative in response to organics recycling being cut from the municipal budget. Please support the #saveourcompost initiative and help bring municipal composting back to New York City.
