Composting

The U of L Recycling department composts food waste from the Level 4 kitchen area, the Students’ Union food court vendors as well as The Zoo pub. In addition, coffee grinds from Tim Horton’s, Starbucks and Coffee Company are also collected. New compost units are located in Markin Hall, the SU food court, Mr. Sub, and level 6 U-hall outside the Urban Market

The Caretaking department composts approximately 800 gallons of material per month.

University caretaking staff transports the material to a compost pile on the south end of campus. The Grounds department then uses the finished product for various projects.

 

Compost material is stored on campus for the Grounds department to use for various landscaping projects.
