BIG!Compost is working hard to increase the number of opportunities for NYC residents to drop off their food scraps and yard waste for local composting. BIG!Compost accepts and processes food scraps as part of the NYC Compost Project funded by the NYC Department of Sanitation. Please visit on.nyc.gov/lorp for more info. Our food scrap drop-off sites are made possible by our incredible community partners, including GrowNYC, Queens Library, and Hour Children Food Pantry. If you have an idea for a new drop off location, please let us know by emailing compost@bignyc.org.

Food Scrap Drop-Offs Managed by Our Community Partners:
