OP-T2-7: Pre-Consumer Food Waste Composting
Does the institution have a pre-consumer food waste composting program?:
A brief description of the pre-consumer food waste composting program:
In collaboration with the local organization Kompost Kids, Inc., Marquette began a pre-consumer composting pilot program at the Straz Tower dining hall in fall 2011. Because of the pilot program’s success, it was decided to expand the program campus-wide. In order to handle the additional pre-consumer compost volume, Marquette partnered with Growing Power. The new program calls for half of campus to sort pre-consumer compost in fall 2012 with the rest of campus participating in spring 2013.
