Stuy Town

To date, StuyTown is the largest housing development participating
in DSNY’s curbside organics pilot. Each building has compost bins on the ground floor, which are emptied three times a week; collecting over five tons of compost per week. Although this is a substantial amount, calculations based on average waste generation for NYC indicate that this is capturing about 20 percent of the organic material in the waste stream.
