Compost Giveback

Sunday, April 16, 2023, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm


The NYC Compost Project Hosted by Queens Botanical Garden is giving away FREE compost! Staff will be present to assist and load 7.5 gallon bags of compost into your vehicle. The compost is made from residential food scraps collected locally and processed at QBG. Limit of 5 bags per registrant. This event takes place in QBG’s Parking Garden at 42-80 Crommelin Street, Flushing, NY.

Compost is for NYC residents only. All registrants must show proof of ID upon entry; name on ID must match registration. Only one session registration is allowed per household; multiple-session registration will result in cancellation of one session. The person who registered for the event must be present to receive compost. You cannot bring a registrant’s ID and pick up material for them; staff will not give compost to the representative of a registrant.

Businesses and commercial vehicles will not be served. If you are interested in larger volumes of compost, please contact us at [email protected] or 718.539.5296.

FREE. Registration required.

Registration goes live April 3 at 12pm. CLICK HERE to register.

Two registration times are available: 10-11am, 11am-12pm. Please note that you will not be given compost during these times if you have not registered. Please do not arrive earlier than the time slot in which you’re registered. Compost cannot be guaranteed for registrants who arrive after their designated time slot.

****We will also be hosting an open session from 1:30- 2pm to distribute any left over bags of compost. It will be a 30-minute time period for individuals who were not able to register for a time slot and would still like to receive compost. Individuals do not need to register for this open session but are only eligible if they did not already receive compost. This is on a first come first serve basis, until we run out!***

If you are unable to attend after registering, please cancel your ticket in advance. Thank you!
