Donate, don't dump!

In 2013, BIG!NYC diverted over 4,000,000 lbs of usable building materials from the landfill!

BIG!Gives Back

has given away $300,000 worth of materials benefiting NYC's community and environment.

BIG! Compost

has diverted 267,230 lbs of food scraps and given away 159,240 lbs of compost and 49,620 lbs of mulch in 2013.

BIG!Blooms

has given away 5,345 pieces of retired lumber to build 2,226 garden beds in over 1,269 community and school gardens.

Our diversion rate reduces climate change emission by 3,200 MTCOE which is like saving 360,000 gallons of gasoline.

Thanks for Another Great Holiday Fair!
