Compost Givebacks

You give us your yard waste and food scraps, and we turn it into compost — then give it back.


NYC residents are eligible to receive free compost made in New York at one of our Compost Giveback Events.

Registration is required. Limit ONE ticket per person. If carpooling, each person must bring their ticket and present ID showing a distinct address.

NOTE: This is for NYC residents ONLY, not businesses. Commercial vehicles will not be serviced.
