Composting at the Greenpoint G

Hey, did you know that you can now drop off your leftovers (ahem..compost) at the Greenpoint Ave G train every Monday morning and then pat your self on the back for saving the planet? This March marks the one year anniversary of the Commuter Composting initiative, which started in Queens and has made it our neck of the woods several months ago.

Compost hours are from 8:30am-10:30am, every Monday morning (except holidays) in front of the Garden (921 Manhattan Ave).

“With Commuter Composting, we are trying to meet New Yorkers where they are, which often happens to be on the way to the subway,” says NYC Compost Project Coordinator, Gina Baldwin.” In Greenpoint, we have about 100 households participating and dropping off in the two programs, diverting over 700lbs of food scraps per week.”

If that’s not part of your commute, you can check out other drop off locations here, including the McGolrick Park Farmers Market on Sundays from 11-2pm.
