Filling In The Gap
Residence halls and dining facilities generated 600 tons of compost at the UW last year, and some ASUW senators are attempting to increase this effort with a resolution to expand composting to other areas of campus.
The resolution recommends that UW Recycling and Solid Waste create a pilot program to place compost bins in buildings throughout campus. ASUW will vote on the legislation in the coming weeks.
“Right now, we have the momentum,” said Matt Zemek, ASUW senator and sponsor of the resolution. “I saw that HFS had a very successful composting program.”
