A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

Daily grounds operations use mulching mowers and chip landscape waste to recycle as mulch. About 11,520 cubic yards of green waste per year stays on campus and is used to mulch beds for water conservation and weed control.

Green waste that cannot be chipped by campus equipment because it is too small or too big is sent to the local county green waste site. The average is about 3,840 yards per year.
