Volunteer with GrowNYC's Zero Waste Programs to promote organics diversion for composting in New York City. Every Saturday, food scraps are collected from neighborhood residents at the Brooklyn Borough Hall Greenmarket and transported to a local compost site for processing. Volunteers are needed to help Compost Coordinators manage this busy food scrap drop-off by assisting with outreach, explanation, and physical work. No experience necessary, just bring a positive attitude and enthusiasm for waste diversion and recycling. This event is outdoors and takes place rain or shine, so please dress for the weather.

If you have not attended Recycling Volunteer Orientation Training, it is required to volunteer for this event. Please register for this month or next month's orientation on VolunteerMatch. If you cannot attend orientation, a brief phone call training can be provided.
