Cobble Hill is getting even greener this fall, and it won’t be the leaves. The city’s organic waste pilot program has arrived in Cobble Hill. Starting October first, you may have seen little brown bins delivered to your home or your neighbor’s yards. All single family homes and residential buildings up to nine units are included. The bins are collected from the curb along with your trash two times a week. The compost collection accepts all food scraps excluding meat, fish, and dairy. Yard waste is also accepted. For more information see the DSNY website.
Also coming up on Sunday, October 18th the Lower East Side Ecology Center’s E-Waste Warehouse is hosting an electronics recycling day at PS 29. Bring your old batteries, lightbulbs, cell phones, computers and more. Proper disposal ensures these hazardous materials stay out of the earth and are reused if possible.
