Have you wondered why you’ve been seeing brown recycling bins popping up all over the city? These bins are part of the city’s new recycling program for your organic waste!
Currently this program is offered to NYC residents, non-profits and city agencies. If you live in a home or an apartment building that is less than 10 units you will automatically receive a free brown bin for your organics recycling. If you live in an apartment building that is 10 units or more you are still eligible for the program through Online Enrollment.
If your neighborhood has not received Organics Collection bins yet don’t worry; bin delivery will resume this April and the service will be available city-wide by the end of 2018.
The Rollout Schedule is now posted on the DSNY website. Click the link below to see when Organics Collection is coming to your neighborhood!
Big Reuse in partnership with DSNY provides outreach and education about this new initiative through our team of Outreach Associates.
In the past couple of weeks over 300 apartment buildings in the South Bronx signed up to receive bins! Some of the Organics Outreach staff will be helping with the Roll-out to these buildings.
If you have any questions about the Brown Bin please stop by our information table at:
Stop and Shop 2965 Cropsey Ave Brooklyn, NY 11214 on Thursday February 1st from 10am-4pm
Or visit nyc.gov/organics for more information! And be sure to look for updates on where we’ll be tabling next.
We now provide free workshops about the bin. Please contact us if you are interested in having a Brown Bin Workshop set up in your neighborhood.
