We are partnering with UN-Habitat NY to celebrate World Habitat Day on October 1, 2018! This year's theme is Municipal Solid Waste Management, and to celebrate we are hosting a special Compost Workday with a tour of the East River Park Compost Yard!

Help us sift and bag compost while getting a behind-the-scenes look at how we process organic waste into rich compost at this volunteer and tour opportunity.

For any questions on this event, please contact: Peter Tzannes at (212) 477-4022 /
