Upcoming Volunteering Canvassing and Bagging Days Week of 8/17 - Big Reuse

Upcoming Volunteering Canvassing and Bagging Days Week of 8/17

The Curbside Composting Outreach team at Big Reuse is working to spread the word about the city’s free, borough-wide food scrap collection. Join us in canvassing Brooklyn neighborhoods to let people know about this new service (and help them order their brown bins) or help us bag finished compost under the Queensboro Bridge. Sign up for both volunteer opportunities at our Eventbrite website links below! Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering with us in general and would like to receive updates when we have opportunities, please fill out this google form so we can keep in touch with you!* Here are some pictures from our past canvassing days:
