Does the institution have a pre-consumer food waste composting program?:

A brief description of the pre-consumer food waste composting program:

The pre-consumer food waste composting program at the University of Colorado began in Sept 2004, which serviced four of the Residence Hall food service locations. Currently, there are six Residence Hall food service locations where pre-consumer food waste is collected along with the Student Union Center, which began in Aug 2007. In addition, one cafe in the Business School has also collected pre-consumer food waste since Aug 2008. The pre-consumer food waste is collected by an external company, Eco-Cycle, who then delivers the material to A-1 Organics, which is approx 30 miles away from the University
