Flower rip-out

Central Park has several long strips of ground used for displaying flowers. I've kind of wondered how they can continue looking so "in-bloom" for months at a time. Now I know the answer - grounds workers rip out the old flowers periodically and plant new ones. The garbage bags above are all packed with the old flowers. I'd like to hope that they're going to be composted, rather than being tossed into an incinerator or a garbage dump.
