Public drop off for compostable food and garden scraps, any time through gate opening. Gate is open year-round: Sundays 8am to 5pm. Come in and enjoy the quiet green space and art, as well as the materials we use everyday.

LESEC supports composting and E-waste (electronics such as computers, TVs, etc) recycling and other sustainability efforts by residents and businesses in Manhattan.

If the gates are closed just put your compostable waste in a plastic bag and slip it through the gate into the bucket. If the gate is open you can empty your scraps into one of the big round compost buckets.
