Hudson River Park’s Community Compost Program invites local residents to participate in simple yet effective actions to support sustainability in their neighborhood.

The Community Compost Program is an initiative designed to help divert NYC’s organic waste from landfills and reduce carbon emissions that harm the environment. Since the Park’s earliest composting efforts in 2015, the Program has grown into a Park-wide operation, turning over 500,000 pounds of food scraps and yard waste into compost each year.

Learn how food scraps and yard waste are processed into nutrient-rich compost that supports healthier plant beds and reduces our carbon footprint. Take a tour of our W 34 St. composting facility with the Park’s compost experts and see how you can support local sustainability!

Looking for a family outing this fall? Join us at HRPK’s annual Pumpkin Smash Sunday, November 7 and smash your Halloween pumpkins to support Park composting! Check back here to learn how you can register for this free event, or follow us on social media @HudsonRiverPark.

To ensure the safety of all patrons of Hudson River Park during the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that anyone who is not vaccinated please wear a mask or face covering at Hudson River Park events when not able to maintain a six-foot distance from others.
