When the city suspended its curbside composting program, local groups across the city stepped up to pick up the slack. The 45th Street Composters in Queens started collecting compost at an empty lot in their neighborhood that they lease from the landowner for just $1. With curbside composting returning, the group is worried about what happens next. Reporter Hannah Fullmer talks with 45th St. Composter Victoria Costa about the future of the group.
