The Union Square Greenmarket is New York City’s biggest and best-known site for eco-conscious residents to drop off kitchen scraps for composting.

Now they have more sites.  On March 5, seven additional Greenmarkets began collecting food scraps from the public on a pilot basis through June 25.  The new Greenmarkets participating in the pilot, and their drop-off hours, are noted below:

    This is amazing!! It can be difficult to maintain your own compost pit, but if a whole city is helping out, you can definitely maintain several GREAT compost pits! This information is gold! Awesome post!
