A City-Scale Compost Pile: The Durst Organization, a New York City real estate company, is spending up to $1 million to collect food waste from their 11 properties around Manhattan, which include One Bryant Park, One World Trade Center and Four Times Square. The half-eaten lunches and scraps are then carted to an upstate compost farm in Dutchess County, turned into fertilizer, and brought back to the city for use on the company’s rooftop gardens. Come spring, Durst will have “green roofs” on eight of its buildings. The company is really putting their money where their trash is.
