As much as you can handle.
It will be available this weekend at the Fresh Kills (hm hm hm) landfill on Staten Island.
Fresh Kills Composting Site
310 West Service Rd.
10314 (near exit 7 of Rt. 440)
The city is suspending its leaf litter pick ups, but this compost is the fruit of past endeavours...
This is one of the best free things New York has to offer.
Instead of paying anything between $8 - $17 a bag, depending on where and what it is, rent a little truck and go and fetch your own. Pool with friends. This is the last time it will be on offer.
$20 compost bins will also be available on site. For vegetable peelings and scraps, to make your own compost.
Compost is the best thing for your garden.
And let's lobby for more leaf litter pick ups. It kills me to see leaves going out with the trash. Mayor Mike, if you are really going to go all potentate on us, leaf litter pick ups, please? It would soften the blow.
