[4]Group02 – In My Backyard New York

In order to change the negative perception linked to the Not In My Backyard (NIMBY)
mentality, our intervention defines “the backyard” as the shed of our new system,
which leverages public and private investment in order to introduce a new way to deal
NYC’s organic waste.

The collection and composting systems are calibrated depending on its location and
the additional programs are catered by the needs of every community that houses a
IMB_center. We are converting organic waste into a source of income and a valuable
resource for our parks and outdoor spaces in the form of fertilizer.
We are aiming to become a center for integration for the community that will play an
important role in the communal progress and a great source of new jobs.
