GLRPPR Sector Resource: Composting Strategies for Colleges and Universities

Title:
Composting Strategies for Colleges and Universities

Abstract:
Universities and colleges generate wasted food from many sources: dining commons, on-campus restaurants, residence halls, sporting venues, and university events. By reducing food sent to landfills or incinerators, schools can save money and reduce their environmental impact. This webinar will hopefully serve to energize students and faculty to take action to reduce or eliminate food waste on campuses throughout the U.S. As part of the Food Recovery Challenge (FRC), EPA is working with schools everyday to secure the FRC commitment of reducing food waste. One great way to do this is to compost the food scraps generated on your campus. This webinar is designed to identify the factors you need to consider and to provide you with the technical information you will need to start a campus composting program. There are currently over 100 colleges and universities participating in the Food Recovery Challenge. Who will be the next school to join? Whether your school has been composting for years or is just beginning to contemplate a composting program, the information presented today will be useful to you. This webinar features an overview of the Food Recovery Challenge and three presentations covering technical and program implementation information.
