"Cycling isn’t just a sport in the Olympics anymore.

Colleges across the country have utilized the environmentally-friendly transportation method as a way to increase composting on campus.

The University of Vermont (UVM) is a new model for schools throughout the U.S. dedicated to eliminating food waste and expanding recycling efforts through bicycle composting programs."


Pilot Program Collects Office Compost by Bike
