Does the institution compost or mulch waste from grounds keeping, including grass trimmings?:
Yes

A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

For grass trimmings, mulching mowers are used that allow the trimmings to go back into the ground to reduce nutrient applications. Grounds keeping has a pile generated this year of 300 yards of yard waste compost including mostly old wood mulch, pruning branches, and sticks. All of this compost gets reused by grounds keeping. Most of all landscape waste is composted onsite. The bigger yard waste (somewhere between 2% and 4%) goes to the landfill.


The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted onsite:
---

The percentage of landscape waste that is mulched or composted off-site:
