Gowanus Salt Lot Compost Volunteer Work Day

Help keep food scraps out of the landfill and make NYC more sustainable!
About this Event

Join the NYC Compost Project Hosted by Big Reuse to volunteer at our large-scale urban composting site in Gowanus.

Volunteers will bag finished compost, break down paper bags/sticks/yard waste into appropriate sizes for composting, decontaminate food scraps and chop whole fruits or vegetables in preparation for the compost pile, and help maintain the site in a variety of ways.

These volunteer events take place every Wednesday in February. They go from 9:30am-1:00pm. If we finish tasks before 1pm we will dismiss volunteers early.

Volunteers should wear close toed shoes, clothes they don't mind getting dirty, and dress for the weather. Some physical activities required (lifting up to 40 lbs bags of compost bags, bending). Bring a water bottle (refills available). Event is rain or shine but you will be notified by e-mail if there is a cancellation.

We are located at 2 2nd Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215, at the end of 2nd avenue.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.

Please RSVP by "purchasing" a ticket (it's free!)
