The NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse is part of a community-scale composting network that works to rebuild our soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost locally. We host food scrap drop-offs, provide outreach and education about composting through stewardship events, and produce high-quality compost.
Help reduce landfill waste and methane emissions by bringing your food scraps to one of 14 drop-off sites.
We compost food scraps locally at our processing site under the Queensboro Bridge in LIC. In 2016, we diverted over 1 million pounds of organic waste from landfills!
Compost for community greening!
We help improve the soil in our neighborhood by distributing finished compost to community greening groups and through volunteer powered stewardship events.
