the garden is now accepting scraps for compost!
A Small Green Patch is now accepting compost drop-off at the lot at 340 Bergen, between 3rd & 4th Avenues, every Sunday from I-4 PM and Tuesdays from 6 PM to dusk. They ask that we please drop off ONLY during compost open hours.
It is recommended that in order to avoid odors, we store food scraps in the freezer or refrigerator, and to minimize waste, we store scraps in a reusable container (no plastic bags will be accepted).
What we can bring: fruits, vegetables, coffee grounds & filters, tea bags, egg shells, flowers, houseplants
Don’t bring: meat, fish, dairy, fat, bones, greasy food scraps, coconuts, pet wastes, coal or charcoal, compostable plastics, or pesticide treated material.
No coconuts. Got it. Good thing you mentioned it, though. Otherwise: COCONUTS AHOY.
I’m ALWAYS wondering what to do with those pesky coconuts. It’s becoming a problem.
