The WFU compost program is a partnership with Gallins Family Farm, a local business that takes organic waste and turns it into a soil amendment. This process prevents food waste from ending up in the landfill, decreases methane production, and creates a useful and nutrient rich product.
Organic waste is collected in five different ways on campus:
- Office collection program
- Dining collection
- Paper towel collection in bathrooms
- Residence hall collection
- Event collection provided by the Compost Crew
Contact Sophie Wimberley (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested in participating in the office collection program.
