Student-led effort to bring composting to the residence halls starts in November

Thu, 10/25/2018 - 9:56am

Western Washington University will launch one of the first residence hall compost programs in the country in the first week of November.

Lidded and ventilated compost buckets will arrive to every residence hall room across campus. Moving forward, all residence hall rooms will have the buckets as standard furnishing. Each bin comes with an instructional sticker, providing students with guidelines to successfully compost their organic waste. Free biodegradable liners are distributed as needed at the residence hall community front desk.
