A brief description of the innovative policy, practice, program, or outcome:

While composting in the dining services facilities has been happening for decades, there has been high demand for a location for staff and students for a place to drop compost from their office, dorm room or off-campus housing. To facilitate this two drop-off bins for compost were opened on campus in the fall of 2009. These bins facilitate composting at small events, in offices and are widely used by students living off-campus. They are not open to the public at large.
