Project LeafDrop 2010 Helps New Yorkers Divert Leaves from the Trash Bin to the Compost Bin

Posted on:

Project LeafDrop, a lively coalition of community garden, open space and greening groups, and other community partners are dedicated to reducing usable organic materials in the City’s wastestream. They are working together to direct fallen leaves from the trash bin to the compost bin.  Last year, residents throughout the City brought over 8 tons of leaves to Project LeafDrop sites…leaves that would otherwise be part of the 20,000 tons of leaves that go into the City’s already-overburdened landfills.  Savvy community gardeners turned them into beautiful, rich compost and mulch for garden beds and hungry street trees.  As more sites are joining the project, they expect to do even better, this year.

Project LeafDrop 2010 sites welcome neighborhood residents to bring their bagged leaves (in clear plastic or paper bags without twigs or trash!) to the following participating sites:

Sustainable Flatbush’s Church Avenue Communal Garden – Flatbush
Flatbush Ave. & Church Ave. bordered by E. 21st St. & Kenmore Terrace. Accepting leaves 11 AM – 1 PM on Saturdays: Nov. 6 and Nov. 13.

Compost for Brooklyn – Kensington/Ditmas Park
Newkirk Ave. & E. 8th St.  Accepting leaves from 3 PM-6 PM on Sundays: Oct. 31 and  Nov. 7, 14 and 21
