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

Carolina Dining Services composts post-consumer food waste from Rams Head Dining Hall, the Top of Lenoir Dining Hall, and the Friday Center conference facility. Food waste and paper products are separated and stored in 65-gallon carts located throughout the food preparation and dishwashing areas, or on the loading dock. The material is collected six times a week and is composted at a facility in Goldston, NC.
