360° Video Shows How New York City Deals With Compostable Food Scraps and Other Materials

Composting in a City with few gardens can be difficult, but we still generate a lot of it in New York City. In this immersive 360° video from the New York Times, see exactly how the City deals with compost.

In this 360° video, follow the journey of food scraps and yard waste from Brooklyn, where it's collected by a sanitation truck, to Staten Island, where the organic waste becomes what gardeners call “black gold.”

If you can't move the view around, you need to use the Google Chrome browser on desktop, or the YouTube App for iOS or Android to move around inside the video.
