BK ROT is a community-supported composting operation that generates year-round environmental jobs for local youth in Bushwick, Brooklyn. BK ROT youth workers collect organic waste from residents, small businesses and community institutions by bike, and process the material at our compost site, Know Waste Lands. Our primary mission is to work at the intersection of the social and environmental injustices impacting youth of color from the neighborhood and the health of our community and larger ecosystem.
