Who is the NYC Compost Project Hosted by Big Reuse?

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 compost food scraps locally at our processing site under the Queensboro Bridge in LIC, Queens and at our Salt Lot facility located on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn. The compost produced is distributed locally to community organizations working to revitalize NYC’s soil. 

We work with over 70 Food Scrap Drop-Off Sites to collect food scraps from NYC residents. 

We help improve the soil in our neighborhood by distributing finished compost to community greening groups and through volunteer powered stewardship events. To help out, contact us at
