A brief description of the composting or mulching program:

East Campus and Osceola Campuses have compost piles for landscape waste, with East Campus grinding its woody material.
For all of our campuses Municipal Solid Waste goes to the Orange County Landfill which charges $29.00/ton to dispose of Yard Waste. Yard waste collected from Orange County homes and businesses is composted and made available to County residents at no charge. Valencia College periodically picks up and uses this compost.
