The Solid Waste Advisory Board of Manhattan is a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to increasing recycling, reducing solid waste, and advancing solid waste policy in New York City. We are a Board comprised of waste and recycling industry experts and concerned citizens, appointed by the Manhattan Borough President's Office. We meet once per month to hear speakers in various areas related to our mission and provide a forum for advancing solid waste policy. We host several events and fundraisers annually and collaborate on many other worthwhile programs with partners.
The SWAB has an annual Composting Grant Program run in collaboration with the Office of Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer and Citizen Committee for New York City. The program, partially funded by the SWAB, awards thousands of dollars worth of grants to organizations in NYC wishing to start or expand their neighborhood composting programs.
