Tier2-6: Post-Consumer Food Waste Composting
Does the institution have a post-consumer food waste composting program?:
A brief description of the post-consumer food waste composting program:
A collaborative effort between Dining Services and Facilities Management turns nearly 300 tons of food waste into rich piles of compost for use in greenhouses and gardens, and as soil amendment on campus. Postconsumer food residuals, waxed cardboard, and paper towels are composted. Plate waste (post consumer food residuals) is run through a pulper to remove excess water.
