On June 1, Domino Park expanded its composting program to offer the North Brooklyn community the option to partake in a public Food Scrap Drop-Off program.

The Domino Park in-vessel composter called The Rocket can convert thousands of pounds of food scraps into compost.

The high-quality soil amendment will be reused on-site and available for free to the general public and other parks and public spaces.

The public can drop off fruit and vegetable scraps, ground coffee, or bread on Mondays from 10 a.m. to noon and Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m. Collections will take place at 15 River Street, adjacent to the park restrooms.

Sustainability initiatives launched at Domino Park have already reduced the number of commercial garbage trips in the neighborhood and diverted thousands of pounds worth of food waste from local retailers.

Due to this closed-loop system, all of the food scraps dropped off by community members are composted and redistributed to the community, further reducing waste going to landfills.

The park will act as a stopgap measure until the city resumes its curbside collection.
