The North Brooklyn Compost Project provides weekly food scrap drop-offs and educates residents on the importance of organic waste diversion.
The North Brooklyn Compost Project is a volunteer-run and donation-based food scrap drop-off program.
We collect food scraps on Sundays at two locations in Greenpoint, Brooklyn: McGolrick Park from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Transmitter Park from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. 
All the scraps we collect are processed into compost by Big Reuse in Queens.
We work with other local composting, food justice initiatives, environmental organizations, and community gardens to make composting more accessible to North Brooklyn residents.
Here are some of the groups we've partnered with:
Big Reuse: An environmental nonprofit dedicated to fighting climate change and achieving zero waste goals. They operate a reuse center in Gowanus that collects and resells salvaged building materials and surplus goods. They also operate two compost sites and process all of  the scraps that we collect.
North Brooklyn Mutual Aid: Mutual aid network that connects individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to organizations and volunteers in the Greenpoint and Williamsburg areas.
Nature Based: An ecological planning, education, and design firm based in Gowanus. They work closely with McEnroe Organic Farms and the Hudson Soil Company to divert food scraps and produce high-quality organic compost.
Los Sures: A housing and social services organization based in South Williamsburg with a robust community garden and food access program (Los Sures Comida). 
Smiling Hogshead Ranch: An urban farm collective in Long Island City that offers education, composting, gardening, and community engagement. 
The North Brooklyn Compost Project is a volunteer-run organization operating on occupied Canarsie Lenape territory. We acknowledge the long history of the Canarsie Lenape people and their ongoing stewardship and connection to this land we now inhabit. As guests in this territory, we wish to pay our respect to elders both past and present.
