Autumn Leaf Composting & Disposal

Posted on: November 12, 2014

Due to budget cuts, the NYC Department of Sanitation’s leaf and yard waste composting collection program is suspended until further notice. When the leaf and yard waste composting collection program is reinstated, residents in yard waste collection districts, including Brooklyn Community District 14, will receive a mailer detailing the collection dates and proper set out for leaf composting.  During the suspension, leaves and yard waste will be collected with regular household refuse on regularly scheduled refuse collection days. (*Paper lawn & leaf bags may not be used during the suspension, since leaves and yard waste are collected as regular trash. Residents and institutions must use either opaque plastic bags or rigid containers to set out leaf and yard waste for Sanitation collection, since they are handled as regular trash.)

DSNY heartily encourages composting leaves and other yard waste wherever possible, by raking leaves into a pile and letting nature do its work. Continue reading below for a list of Composting Locations in Brooklyn Community District 14 For composting guidelines and to find out about community gardens that accept bagged leaves from the public (in paper or clear plastic bags without twigs or trash,) keep reading below (for CD14 locations) or contact the NYC Compost Project or visit  www.NYCLeaves.org to find out more about leaf collection programs around the city.  Read the rest of this entry »

NYC Law: Drive 25 MPH

Posted on: November 7, 2014

As of November 7, 2014, the speed limit on all New York City streets is 25 MPH unless otherwise posted. Excessive speed contributes to 25 percent of roadway fatalities on New York City Streets and is the leading cause of motor vehicle crashes. Reducing vehicle speed from 30 to 25 mph doubles the likelihood of a pedestrian surviving a crash. Lowering the speed limit is one of 63 initiatives being undertaken by New York City Mayor de Blasio’s administration as part of Vision Zero, a comprehensive set of policies to reduce traffic fatalities in New York City. Click Here to read responses from the Department of Transportation (DOT) to frequently asked questions regarding the new reduced city speed limit.
