In Residential Areas
Students have asked for the opportunity to collect food waste
from their rooms and student kitchens in the residence
halls. UVM Recycling has asked the UVM Eco-Reps Program to
help with this pilot collection program. Students can get
small plastic tubs which can be used to store
food scraps prior to composting. (Okay, so these are really empty
32-oz yogurt containers, but we put a nice sticker on them and call
them "a compost tub"). Students then must
bring their own food waste to one of the existing compost
collection sites on
campus-- generally these are the dining hall locations.
Students are responsible for
emptying and cleaning out their own compost tub; the Housekeeping
staff will not be picking up food waste.
If you would like your very
own small compost tub, please
and let us know your name, residence hall, and room number...and an
Eco-Rep will deliver
one to you.
