compost_gptf_2013 (1)Composting just got a little easier with the opening of Commuter Composting Sites. BIG!Compost, a program of Build It Green! NYC, has opened 18 composting sites in Brooklyn and Queens. Three sites have convenient morning hours (some open as early as 8am), so folks can easily drop off their food scraps as they start their morning commute. So far, BIG!Compost has diverted 267,230 pounds of food scraps from landfills.

Go to the BIG!Compost page to get more details on the program and find current drop off locations. Additional sites are in the works, so continue to check their page for updated information!
