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.

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.

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

Conan's Treasures

The folks at Late Night with Conan O'Brian couldn't take all of his weird stuff with him to LA for his new TV spot, so they donated a bunch of it to us. Some new items include:

*Hockey Helmets with baby dolls attached

*A 4 ft wide Lazy Susan

*Vacuform brick wall flats

*Max Weinberg's Band Risers (Black carpet)

Check out this Sunday's Daily News for more info and extensive interviews with Harvey and Justin on the subject or have a look at some pics at our Flickr page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/builditgreennyc). Do you have a use for them?
