Office Organics Program

Campus?departments are invited to join the campus organics program which focuses?on capturing food waste generated by staff who bring their lunches to work.? In order to adequately control the content and quality of the organic collection, an organics collection container is provided for kitchen?or lounge spaces as well as an information sheet that outlines what is accepted into the organics program.? This container will be emptied into an exterior toter that is picked up weekly and?transported to a composting facility.? Departments can join the office organics program by filling out a request form.

Dining Room & Retail Food Outlets

The dining rooms and retail food outlets participate in an organics program.??The dining halls have been equipped with two ECorect machines: one in Ban Righ in 2009 and one in Leonard Hall in 2011. The material that comes out of the composter is put into organics collection toters?and sent to a composting facility.??The campus?retail outlets also participate in the organics program?nd organic materials from the kitchens to a composting facility. Compostable items include: meat, dairy products, produce, coffee grounds, kitchen paper towels, napkins, uncoated paper take-out containers, cups and plates, and pizza boxes.
