Does the institution compost or mulch waste from grounds keeping, including grass trimmings?:
Yes

A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

All College uses leaves in either the composting process on Cerridwen Farm or as mulch on the vegetable fields and campus grounds. They provide a natural carbon source when added to food waste compost. Worms perform a large portion of the composting process and are plentiful in the compost piles.

During the winter, some shredded paper is added as an additional carbon source.
