Organic Waste Collection To Start In Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Gowanus, And Red Hook This Fall

Brooklyn neighborhoods Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Gowanus, and Red Hook will be getting a present from the Department of Sanitation this fall when they start collecting compost and other organic waste from a curbside bin.

Being ‘green’ will be a lot easier starting this fall, when the NYC Department of Sanitation is expanding its organic collection into our neighborhood. This means that we will all soon have a brown collection bin in front of our house, which will be emptied by Sanitation twice a week.

See the City’s page on recycling and garbage for more info.
