FOR PICK UP ONLY
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.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, you must bag your own compost and you must bring your own containers and tools.
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!
Available in the following grades:
Recommended as a substitute for woodchips, such as for tree beds.
