Location Information

Compost Volunteer Workday @ East River Park

ThursdayAug 8 2019 @ 2 PM - 4 PM

The LES Ecology Center, in partnership with the NYC Compost Project, diverts over 450 tons of food scraps from landfills annually. The food scraps are collected locally and then processed into compost at the East River Park Compost Yard. Volunteers will sift and bag compost while getting a behind-the-scenes look at how we process organic waste into rich finished compost for community gardens and parks.

This volunteer and tour opportunity will take place on Thursday, August 8th from 2-4pm at the East River Park Compost Yard.
