You can find a compost bin in most areas where food is consumed on campus! That includes cafeterias, cafes, kitchenettes, and common rooms.
Organics are picked up by an external service provider for off-site composting. Visit GFL Environment Inc's website for more info on their composting process.
We're offering small-scale composters to any groups or departments on campus who'd like to process organic waste and use the compost! Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
