Waterpod™ Garden Film Screening: Addicted to Plastic

Informal tours of the garden’s compost area will also be available upon request. 103rd Street Community Garden (b/t Park and Lex), Thursday, August 27, 8pm (film begins at sunset). Bring your own blanket or lawn chair. One in a series of environmental films during PRdream's Summer Film Fest, now in its 7th year.

CENYC's OFFICE OF RECYCLING OUTREACH & EDUCATION (OROE) works to improve the City's recycling rate by educating residents about recycling and waste prevention, and working with landlords to make sure building recycling programs are adequate. Our free services include apartment building recycling audits, trainings for tenants and supers, community events centered on education and special collection programs for textiles, electronics, and compost. OROE's current intensive efforts target one-quarter of New York City's residents. Our five borough-wide coordinators work on a community-by-community basis to identify and address the specific challenges to recycling within a Community District.
