New Compost Drop-off Rules at LESEC

Beginning this month there are new rules for compost drop-off at the Lower East Side Ecology Center in Manhattan:

"Starting August 1, 2009 the Lower East Side Ecology Center Garden will only accept kitchen scraps on Sundays during open hours, 8am-5pm. We are still accepting kitchen scraps at the Union Square Greenmarket on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 8am-5pm.

We do not have the capacity to deal with the ever-increasing amounts of bags filled with compost at our garden."

For more information, visit the LESEC website.
