  • Easy, accessible, and smart.

    This is the future. Best compost collection system in the world. Other cities should be jumping all over this.
  • Good concept, bad execution

    By Kevin Tyrrell
    Composted before moving to the city, so naturally loved the idea but the app’s gps is not up to snuff. Several times bins refuse to open because Im not “close enough” to the bin while my phone rests on top of it
  • First time

    By NYCgreengal
    Terrible! I was excited to try this, gathered my compostables and headed to the bin but after I got there it said “out of service” so then I just put everything in the corner trash can. What a joke and what a waste of my time. Like many other Mayor Adams ideas-lots of hype then no delivery :(
  • Perfectly simple

    By Boltonbee
    I love this app so much! Simple, clean design. Well thought out. It does exactly what it says it will do — helps you discard your compost safely and easily. xo

  • Changed my life!

    By Tray C-ompost
    Finally, an app and bins that actually make it EASY to compost ANY type of food scraps any day or time. THANK YOU!!!!!
  • Compost 👍; phone app 👍, 💡⌚️

    By sam-vilde
    I love having all time access to the compost bins, and really hope this program is a success!! Having an app to unlock the boxes is a good idea, and when my box was full, I liked that the app pointed me to a nearby option. But you know what would be even more awesome? A WATCH option. When I run out of the house with a sack of near rotting garbage, I’d love to not have to bring, or pull out and manipulate, my phone.
  • whole sandwich in there

    By Politicswonk2046
    sometimes I go to subway and buy a sandwich and then put the whole sandwich in one of these bins because they’re so fun to use
  • Love composting but bin design is bad

    By meeeeeeets
    Love the composting app and the plentiful bins near me. I have no issues with the app. But the mouth of the bin is quite small to fit even a modest bag of compost in it. I usually have to shove it in, likely tearing the bag on the way in. But overall very happy with this new feature in my life.
  • Good app, need an Android version asap

    By RicoSuave5
    Seems to work well on Apple. But you need to creat an Android version asap. There are more Android phones out there.
