Description

Compost? What’s that? Join UW Grounds and UW Recycling for this on-campus tour to witness composting firsthand and learn why compostable material such as food scraps, coffee grounds and leaves isn’t waste but a resource. UW Grounds manages an on-campus compost facility where select leaves and coffee grounds from campus are processed into a rich soil amendment for use on campus landscaping and grounds. This facility helps divert valuable materials from the landfill and plays an integral role in fulfilling the University’s sustainability commitments.

Meet your Dawg Daze Leader at Drumheller Fountain at 3:00pm (group leaves 3:10pm) and walk together to the UW Compost Facility located near Corp Yard 2 (by the Urban Horticulture Center and UW Farm). Plan to wear comfortable shoes and to walk about 20 minutes to the facility.
