COMPOSTING

Composting is a process that turns organic waste (usually food scraps) into nutrient-rich soil.

Campus Dining collects the food scraps that FSA Volunteers load into the composter and track the progress. After 3 weeks, campus operations and maintenance unloads the compost to be cured and distributed in the landscaping and flower beds throughout campus.
