    New York City is in a race to achieve Zero Waste to Landfills by 2030. To do so, the city’s Department of Sanitation (DSNY) has implemented an Organics Collection pilot program to develop an informed, pragmatic, and aggressive plan to divert organic waste in pursuit of this ambitious agenda.

    In June, DSNY submitted its third Diversion Report to update citizens on the status of this pilot program. The report comments on the successes of the program, noting that from October 2014 to April 2015 DSNY collected over 6,700 tons of organic material from residents and schools — almost doubling the amount diverted since the program’s start for a total of more than 13,200 tons. The Diversion Report discusses the progress made in both schools and residential buildings and the next steps to support the goals of One New York.
