Compost Requests

Compost Support Requests

We’re here for YOU!
The NYC Compost Project hosted by Queens Botanical Garden
offers presentations, tours, info tables, speakers, and courses to the community to learn about and practice composting.

Submit a request below based on your community’s need.


Information Tabling

Do you have an event that could use educational literature or demonstration on composting? Our representatives can introduce your attendees to compost and the many resources to learning more about composting programs.

Available April through October.



For specific topics of compost, such as how to use it or its part in making NYC more sustainable, request a presentation for your group or organization. Presentations can take place at your site or virtually on Zoom. They include Compost 101, What is a Food Scrap Drop-Off Site, or How to Make a Worm Bin.

Available April through October.


Technical Assistance

Build and improve your site’s compost systems! We can guide you in creating action plans, compost processing and building, troubleshooting problems, and more.

Technical assistance is intended for community compost sites, community gardens, and schools.


Compost & Browns Delivery & Pick Up

Does your organization need compost for garden beds, wood chips for street trees, or a browns mix for your composting system? Request compost or browns for pick up from the Garden or delivery to your site.

Delivery and pick-up are intended for groups and organizations only, not for individual households.
