Community composting project ends due to budget cuts

Mayor Eric Adams’ budget cuts have ended the city’s 30-year community composting effort as the city expands its curbside composting program.

City Council members and environmentalists are calling on Adams to reverse these cuts.

Shaun Abreu, chairman of the City Council’s Sanitation and Solid Waste Management Committee, joined “The Rush Hour” to discuss calls for recovery funding.
