Organics Recycling

Organics Recycling is the process of collecting biodegradable organic material and turning it into compost. The program is primarily concerned with recovering food waste, which accounts for 25% of the U's total waste output.

We are currently piloting organics recycling in select buildings, and plan to expand the program across campus. 

If you'd like to see organics recycling in your building, please contact us. 

Learn how to hold a zero waste event, which includes organics recycling.
