A brief description of the postconsumer food waste composting program:

We have just recently begun a post-consumer food waste composting program at our residential dining facility. All food scraps are placed on a conveyor with the dishes and are sorted when they arrive in the dish room. In our other main dining location, the Student Activities Center Multipurpose Room, we have also begun collecting post-consumer food waste when volunteers are available to staff a scrape station.
