The waste box is inserted into the potté compost bin and the magic begins!

as well as some other locations.

New York City Parks and Recreation Staff
The New York City Parks and Recreation Staff will be managing the bins to make sure the systems are healthy and working properly. This will include adding dry material and enzymes as needed, stirring the bin with the crank and restocking the waste boxes
The benefits of this system will be less plastic use in parks, less smell in common areas, and the city will have natural locally sourced fertilizer. Making the city parks cleaner and safer.
Owners will be educated on dog waste and have a more enjoyable experience picking up after their dog. Park users will get educated on sustainable practices as well.
