Compost at Dag Hammarskjold Greenmarket - December


Event Description:

Volunteer with GrowNYC's Zero Waste Programs to promote organics diversion for composting in New York City. Every Wednesday, food scraps are collected from neighborhood residents at the Dag Hammarskjold Greenmarket and transported to a local compost site for processing. Volunteers are needed to help Compost Coordinators manage this busy food scrap and textile drop off site 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 and wear comfortable closed toe shoes.

Volunteers must be 18 years and older.
