Where is composting set up? In what future locations do you see additional compost sites going?


UVM does not have any large-scale compost sites on campus. Composting is done off site by a non-profit composting facility called Intervale Compost Products which is owned by the Chittenden Solid Waste District.  The site is located near campus and is a popular place for students and classes to visit and learn about the composting process.

The only composting projects on campus are a "backyard" bin located behind one of the residence halls, and a "vermicomposting" bin located inside another residence hall. These are very small projects used for demonstration and learning purposes.  The University Dairy farm also runs a small-scale manure composting operation, but they do not handle any non-farm or non-manure waste.
