A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

Our composting program on camus encompases the composting of all plant material harvested from mowers and tree and shrub trimmings. We have a 2-acre composting facility that has the following: a shaker, winrow turner, and its own water supply to make approximatly 300 tons of compost a year. Once composted, all product is reapplied on campus to turf and shrub beds. We also have two Certified Compost Facilitators.
