Donate your used stuff
Donating to Big Reuse provides others with affordable second-life applications of quality building materials. Your donations help support local environmental initiatives, and reduce our city's dependence on raw material consumption and landfills.
As a bonus, Big Reuse is a 501c3 charity, so all donations are tax deductible!
Improving our city's soil with compost
The NYC Compost Project hosted by Big Reuse is part of a community-scale composting network that works to rebuild our soils by providing New Yorkers with the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to produce and use compost locally.
Founded in 2005 as Build it Green!NYC, we became Big Reuse in the summer of 2015. Our name has changed, but our mission remains the same: to divert materials from landfills, minimize carbon emissions, and provide our community with quality, low cost building materials and home furnishings.
