Organic Waste Disposal & Composting

Organic food waste is collected currently at the following locations: Market Hall, DeCew Cafeteria, Student Centre, Lowenberger Cafeteria and at the International Centre.

The most convenient location to dispose of organic waste is the conveyor belt in Market. For staff and faculty, there are small compost bins in their lunch rooms that are emptied daily.

During the 2016 Waste Audit, it was discovered that approximately 33.8% of waste sent to landfill was organic material. In an effort to improve the organic capture rate, we are asking you to participate in this program and help  improve our waste diversion rate.
