VIDEO: New Orleans Compost NOW!

Compost NOW is a free residential food waste collection project in New Orleans. Master Composter Lynne Serpe and her team of volunteers partner with the New Orleans Public Library to build on the community library model of reuse and resource sharing in a place that’s convenient to everyone, across all demographics and ages.

Compost NOW raised more than $1,500 with ioby to expand to two additional sites, and help add a weekday and evening drop-off option. Their ultimate goal is to build a network of community composters in every neighborhood in New Orleans, collectively diverting tons of food waste from the landfill each month.
