Yes

A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

Jefferson composts landscape waste where possible.

On the Southwest Campus, landscape waste that accumulate along the edge of the property is composted for various trimmings.

The Technical Campus recently purchased a composter for yard waste and other organic material. This is Jefferson’s first ever composter, providing a way not only of reducing the amount of waste that needs to be disposed of, but also of converting it into a product that is useful for gardening, or landscaping.


The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted onsite:
50

The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted off-site:
0
