Farmers Market Is Back But Not Composting

A citywide movement is underway to restore composting, a victim of coronavirus budget cuts, but as that effort works its way through the municipal machinery, Roosevelt Island environmental activist Christina Delfico asks The Daily to share some helpful info.

Reminder: There will be NO Food Scrap Drop Off collection until further notice.

Meanwhile, islanders are getting creative and one island resident shared this resource on 6 Tips to Composting from Epic Gardening.

If you wish to support reinstating the Compost Program's safe return please contact Speaker Corey Johnson and the sign petition https://www.change.org/p/mayor-bill-de-blasio-nyc-needs-to-compost and follow @SaveNYCompost on twitter for more action steps and hashtag #SaveOurCompost

Keeping up to date on progress, Delfico offered a link to a statement from the Queens Solid Waste Advisory Board (SWAB). detailing the case for composting.
