Does the institution compost or mulch waste from grounds keeping, including grass trimmings?:
A brief description of the composting or mulching program:
The college composts 100% of yard waste generated on campus. The compost is mixed with other amendments, primarily sand, and is then re-used on campus for landscape projects. With the exception of some of the very large landscape projects, the college’s yard waste area produces all the loam required for projects. The college also grinds all woody debris including brush, trees which are not utilized for firewood, and stumps to produce approximately 95% of all mulch used on campus. Our yard waste composting facility is located on campus, so this minimizes transportation significantly.
