Composting on Campus
Compost on Campus
By composting spent coffee grinds, back-of-house food scraps, and plate waste from dining halls, we have already, to date, diverted thousands of tonnes of organic waste from landfills.
Composting organic waste has many environmental benefits, including improving soil health, reducing our waste streams, and, most notably, helping reduce methane generation.
Over the last several years, our campus composting program has grown exponentially and has become a critical part of our waste reduction efforts on the University of Guelph central campus.
Below you will find various links related to composting, including an overview of our current program, our progress to date, and resources on how to compost on and off campus.
