  • 7th Avenue B/Q station, Park Place and Carlton Avenue: 8:00AM to 10:00AM on Wednesdays, sponsored by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's NYC Compost Project.
  • Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket: 8:00AM to 3:30PM on Saturdays, sponsored by GrowNYC and its community partners.

Both locations accept food waste year round.For a map of all compost drop off locations, see the Department of Sanitation web site.
