FOR PICK UP ONLY

We have a limited supply of pre-bagged compost. Be prepared to bag your own compost - we have bags and shovels to use.

We compost food scraps locally at our Salt Lot facility in partnership with the NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse.

Please note, compost is only distributed to public greening projects led by community groups, schools, or individuals; it cannot be given out for commercial or private residential use (as in backyards). Requests are approved based on availability.

Refer to this compost tip sheet to determine the amount of compost you need for your project. Remember that a little compost goes a long way!

If you are a community group, school, or individual in need of bulk compost (greater than 1 cubic yard) for your public greening project, please reach out to info@gowanuscanalconservancy.org.
