CHELSEA — New Yorkers looking to compost their food scraps can drop them off in a host of new bins set up in Hudson River Park.

The park on Manhattan's West Side recently expanded its composting program to include six new sites along the waterfront, it said in a release.

Chelsea Waterside Park at West 23rd Street and Pier 84 at West 44th Street are among the locations with new scrap deposit bins.

“The initiative is part of a streamlined effort among community members and elected officials to sustain Hudson River Park’s natural resources, reduce the carbon footprint and engage New Yorkers in composting,” the release said.

Select food scraps can be tossed into the bins from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, it added.

A full list of acceptable scraps to deposit can be found on the Department of Sanitation's website.
