For our 24-hour drop-off to resume:
- We need volunteers*.
To volunteer, go to downtoearthgarden.org/volunteer (online signup form).
* Goal: 14+ volunteers, 2 per day, each choosing a day/week, + backups.
- Sanitation (DSNY) to restart their Curbside Composting**.
Resumption of DSNY’s pickup service depends on how many have signed up within the neighborhood. Please have your building consider signing up: nyc.gov/curbsidecomposting
** Curbside Composting (organic waste pickup) — Pre-pandemic, DSNY picked up about 40% of our food waste; we composted 60% in-garden.
So, in order for a 24-hour drop-off to not overwhelm us, we need both: volunteers and DSNY to resume their pickup.
