LSU students propose that a campus wide composting program be initiated to collect and compost available organic waste streams from the LSU campus and be transported to the LSU-AgCenter – W.A. Callegari Environmental Center, where land and equipment are available. Training sessions are also offered at Callegari Center through the LSU AgCenter, http://www.lsuagcenter.com/en/our_offices/departments/W.A._Callegari_Environmental_Center/composting/Composting+Organics.htm
In Fall of 2009, a pilot study was conducted by students taking HORT 4012 for credit. http://sustainability.lsu.edu/Education/Service%20Learning/Horticulture/item41714.pdf
In Spring 2011, students prepared a formal proposal for campus-wide composting effort, http://sustainability.lsu.edu/Education/Service%20Learning/Horticulture/item41715.pdf
In Fall 2011, it was passed as a resolution by Student Government, http://sustainability.lsu.edu/files/item38320.pdf
In Spring 2012, phase I of the compost program was implemented including waste from animal beddings from the LSU Vet School.
