Upcoming Outreach Events Week of 6/1 - Big Reuse

Upcoming Outreach Events Week of 6/1

The Curbside Composting Outreach team at Big Reuse is working all over Queens to spread the word about the city’s free, borough-wide food scrap collection. If you need compost for your houseplants or a new scrap bin for your kitchen, come find us at one of our upcoming Queens events!* We’re also attending the Bay Ridge 5th Avenue festival on June 4 in Brooklyn!

(*Weather permitting; some events will only have scrap bins available)

We’re excited to attend some open garden days in Brooklyn and Queens this weekend as well (June 3 & June 4)! Check out our instagram story for the list of locations and times.
