Yes

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

All food scraps returned from the ‘all you care to eat’ facilities are pulped and collected for composting. All retail dining facilities use compostable disposable materials and have custom designed bins to facilitate post-consumer sorting. We work with a composting company that is 8 miles from campus and they pick up the compostable materials on a regular basis.
