BK ROT is a compost collection service powered by local youth in Bushwick, Brooklyn. We offer seasonal compost pick-up memberships to residents for a small fee, which helps us provide stipends to local youth who run the service. The program is designed to place youth and local residents directly into larger social and environmental justice movements by collecting organic materials from residents in Bushwick, north Bed-stuy, East Williamsburg and Ridgewood. We sell half of the finished nutrient rich soil to cover operation costs and the rest is donated to local urban farms, gardens and school gardens and community projects. Sign-up Now!
