Community rallies to preserve Queensbridge composting as Parks Dept. eviction looms

Iryna Shkurhan

“I don’t buy the argument that you can’t have parks and community composting right next to each other. The fact that this needs to be used for parking space, it makes no sense.” - Council member Shaun Abreu 

 

LIC Rallies Around Queensbridge Composting Site

Celina Bernhardt

“[Residents] want parking because they don’t understand the importance of compost. So we need more education, because not only does it go to feed gardens throughout the city — food, and stuff like that — but it can benefit the health of people right here in Queensbridge. If we can find a way to deepen the relationship, to educate people […] then people will be more inclined to fight for it, as opposed to saying, ‘No, we want parking.’” - "Suga Ray" Marston 

 

Queens electeds look to stop eviction of composting site

Ryan Schwach

“We demand that NYC Parks allow Big Reuse to remain at their Queensbridge Composting Site to put the needs of people over creating a parking lot for city vehicles. Without the vital work Big Reuse has done at their site, we would not be able to address sustainability, food insecurity, and environmentalism in our city.” - Council member Julie Won
