New Hoboken Composting Drop-Off
Beginning June 15, the city of Hoboken and Community Compost Company will offer free residential compost drop off at four sites: City Hall, 94 Washington Street (near patio behind City Hall on Bloomfield Street between Newark and First streets); Church Square Park, 400 Garden Street (near restrooms in the center of the park); Elysian Park, 1100 Hudson Street (near restrooms on the north side of the park); and 7th and Jackson Plaza (near Portland Loo restroom on 7th Street between Monroe and Jackson streets). The drop-off site at the Public Works Garage will close permanently when these new sites open.
In 2018, the composting program was expanded to include weekly curbside pickup of food scraps for local businesses, schools and the Public Works Garage. Community Compost Company also offers an option for residential pick-up of food scraps directly from the doorstep on a weekly or biweekly basis for a fee.
The expansion will help reduce Hoboken’s landfill waste as part of the comprehensive strategy to create a more sustainable city and become carbon neutral by 2050, exceeding the goals of the Paris Agreement.
