Composting Pilot and Waste Diversion SignageJan 14, 2024
The University has been proud to partner with Wompost ( https://www.wompostcoop.com/) to initiate composting at some dining facilities on campus. Compost collection is taking place in Research 2, AHSB and Education 2 and we hope to grow collection of compost to other facilities across campus over time. Compost is an important part of our waste diversion efforts, coupled with Recycling collection. We hope to keep growing our waste reduction efforts and volume. In that light, we have also created new signage for our waste stream that is still going up across campus. It is important to adhere to the instructions on the signage when placing items in the waste streams.
Contamination of the bins, especially Compost, will discount the loads at the compost facility and it will become landfill waste. Please help us keep the streams clean and please let us know of questions or suggestions as we improve these processes.
