Brooklyn dog park: six years of upcycling poo

Updated: Jun 24, 2023

“Dog waste in and of itself doesn’t have any value…so we decided to create value out of it by upcycling it to fertilizer,” Leslie Wright of the New York State Parks Department said.



In 2016 a pilot program at Williamsburg East River State Park tested the feasibility of on-site dog waste composting using scoopers and cedar bins. See the CBSNY and Tribune video posts.


The composting program, implemented by park staff member Devin Goshen, became a permanent program and is currently operating at the original site. See the EPWN webinar presenting an update of the East River State Park - renamed Marsha P. Johnson State Park - dog waste composting program.
