Food Recovery and Food Donations
RoHo Compost partners with businesses to donate non-saleable but still perfectly edible food to charities such as the Bowery Mission. In 2017, RoHo diverted and recovered over 7000 pounds of edible food, which provided 5000 meals to families in need.
Food Waste Composting
RoHo Compost works with businesses to design and implement composting programs that separate inedible food waste into a non-contaminated "organics" waste stream that can be composted. We provide partner organizations with containers to separate their organics, which we collect and replace regularly, per the needs of the client.
We offer educational training to students and organizations on the science and operations behind composting and organic waste processing as well as the larger picture for sustainable waste management in NYC and beyond. We've partnered with Smorgasburg/Brooklyn Flea to create North America's largest ever zero-waste station, where we provide hands on training in a safe and structured environment. Trainings take place at our partner organizations, Brooklyn Flea & Smorgasburg, every weekend. Get in touch through our Contact page to learn more!
