HELL’S KITCHEN, NY — There’s good news for Manhattanites who were left without composting options when the city suspended its pickup program during the pandemic: community compost sites have reopened along the Hudson River waterfront, including a brand-new site in Hell’s Kitchen.
Ten drop-off sites are located along four miles of Hudson River Park, which stretches along the waterside from 59th Street down to Battery Park City.
The 10 sites now open for the fall include three new ones: the Pier 96 Boathouse at West 55th Street, Pier 66 at West 26th Street and Pier 46 at Charles Street. The sites are open every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., accepting any of the following items: fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds and filters, tea bags, rice, pasta, bread, cereal, eggs, nutshells and flowers.
