Does the institution have a postconsumer food waste composting program?:
Yes

A brief description of the postconsumer food waste composting program:

Post-consumer food waste is sorted and collected in the kitchens of all three dining halls on our campus. In addition to food scraps, we have converted all disposable products used on campus to compostable alternatives. While washable china, flatware and cups are encouraged, we do offer disposable "take-out" containers, cups and flatware, which are all compostable. Initiating composting on our campus has reduced waste from our dining units by over 90%. All material is transported to a nearby facility for composting.
