Join Big Reuse and New York Cares as we tackle the latest donations at our Reuse Centers. Events are scheduled at our Astoria warehouse on the first Sunday of every month and in Gowanus every other Thursday. Please wear workboots or closed toe shoes and clothes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty. Projects range from sorting and measuring salvaged doors, to de-nailing reclaimed lumber, to sorting paint donations. RSVP via NYC Cares
Learn how to keep trees happy and healthy with the NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse! Help prepare local tree beds during the fall and winter. We’ll weed, cultivate, and amend tree beds with locally made compost and mulch to help them thrive in our urban environment. We'll provide gloves, tools, snacks and tree care know-how! All ages welcome at tree care events. Youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult to sign safety waiver. Please wear clothes suitable for gardening work and closed-toed shoes. For more information or to RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse turns residential food scraps and NYC Parks leaves and wood chip into compost to rebuild our urban soils!
