Compost Garden

Compost drop-off at the AS Sustainability compost garden

Compost is nature’s way of recycling nutrients back into the soil.

Composting diverts wastes that are currently going to the landfill. Composting also improves the fertility and health of gardens and gives an opportunity to learn about the process of decomposition. It is easy, inexpensive and fun.

The compost Garden is now accepting your food waste! Open 24/7!

This is perfect for those who live in an apartment, and the offices on campus who want to compost.

We will take:

  • Coffee and tea bags
  • Fruits and veggies
  • Grains/cereal
  • Egg shells

We will not take:

  • Dairy
  • Meat
  • Paper Products
  • Cardboard
  • BioPlastics

Want to learn more?

Visit the Compost Display Area (CDA) during open hours (closed Fall 2020 during campus closure) or see the schedule below to attend a free weekend workshop. Come learn how to compost in your own backyard!
