We have two operational community compost sites that we run locally in NYC to process the food scraps we collect: One in Gowanus and one in Queensbridge.
Queensbridge Community Compost Site
Our current location under the Queensbridge opened in 2018 on unused Parks land in collaboration with The NYC Parks Department. It’s a state of the art facility that features an Aerated Static Pile system and large Gore Tex covers.
Tours at our QB site take place every other friday. Register here!
Gowanus Salt Lot Community Compost Site:
In 2017 The NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse teamed up with Gowanus Canal Conservancy to run the largest community based compost facility in Brooklyn. We utilize a bay system that features electric blowers that force air into the compost piles.
