compost nyc

January 2011 -- The Lower East Side Ecology Center is doing just about all they can to save NYC from its own waste. Take your kitchen scraps, for example. They collect it from regular NYC family kitchens, compost it, then sell it each week at the Union Square Greenmarket for just $1.50 for a one-pound bag. There is no better bargain in all of the city!

The ecology center is also the hosts of an annual electronics-waste recycling project. The recycling drive takes place each January. Everyone with electronics from old computer monitors and keyboards and telephones to pagers can bring the items to Union Square during the event dates in January. For those dates, visit this page.
