Greenmarket Food Scrap Collection Schedule

GrowNYC currently offers food scrap collection at 35 Greenmarket locations. Consult our main compost page for a guide of what we do and do not accept.

Please adhere to the drop-off schedule at each location. Food scraps cannot be accepted after stated hours.  All locations are year-round unless noted otherwise.

In cases of severe weather, markets may close early or be cancelled.  Please drop early and check our blog or follow us on social media for schedule updates.
