WHY COMPOST?

Composting is good for the land, reduces dependence on fossil fuels and reduces landfill waste and incineration, and therefore emissions. Compost can be truned into a natural fertilizer, adding nutrient rich soil to the land and promoting biodiversity.

Composting is actually a lot easier than recycling! Dining staff will compost for you in lower dining hall. However, in Hillside and Mac you must do so yourself. All food that you haven't eaten goes in the compost bin along with the objects listed below can be composted!
