How To Expand Organic Waste Recycling In New York City

Wednesday, Dec 10, 2014

The third Green Infrastructure Policy Forum is coming up! Dig Deep for a Greener New York, a policy forum series offers a timely discussion on organic waste and composting for NYC. PlaNYC2030 set out an ambitious goal to divert 75 percent of our solid waste from landfills. As food currently makes up 35 percent of all waste generated in New York City, composting is an attractive strategy to save taxpayer dollars and improve environmental performance. Various composting pilot projects are underway in residential and school settings. But to truly reach an economy of scale and address inherent challenges involving organic waste, infrastructure must be developed. This forum will address these issues and discuss potential next steps.

Sponsors: New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and NYU Wagner Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems

Date: Wednesday, December 10, 8 am - noon

Location: NYU Wagner School, 295 Lafayette Street [Map]
