A brief description of the post-consumer food waste composting program:

Food waste is collected after meals in the dining hall and processed through an industrial pulper. In addition, all disposable items in the dining hall are compostable and are run through the pulper. Materials processed with the pulper is then sent to the college’s organic farm to be composted and used as a soil supplement.
