Department of Sanitation
To speed the clean-up effort in hard-hit areas, the city is reducing trash pickups in the relatively unscathed ones, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced today at a Department of Sanitation depot in the Rockaways.
Jodie Colón, according to the list of contributors to the NYC Compost Project’s Master Composter manual, “defines crazy for composting.”
This is literally true. Colón, a full-time compost educator at the New York Botanical Garden, actually designed a quiz to measure composting passion. Points are awarded for behavior like striking up a compost conversation with a stranger, bragging about compost, or knowing “too much” about earthworms’ anatomy, velocity and sex life.
