Does the institution compost or mulch waste from grounds keeping, including grass trimmings?:
Yes

A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

On the central part of campus, all mowers have mulching blades on them and the clippings are dispersed back into the lawn. The only clippings that are picked up are on the athletic fields unless weather conditions have kept areas from being mowed and the grass is piling up in the center part of campus. In autumn, leaves are picked up and delivered to the leaf pile on Old Farm Road. The leaves are used as compost in planting beds and different projects also available for the community to personally use.
