Now it’s more important than ever to pitch in and keep up our campus-wide efforts to divert food waste from the landfill. Here’s what you can do:
- Pitch in: Take turns hauling your office’s compost bag to a nearby green roll cart. Here is a map (pdf) of convenient compost drop-off locations on campus.
- Free bags: Compostable bin lining bags are available for free from Facilities, located in the basement of the University Services Building. Or you can submit a work order and get bags delivered.
- Snag a fancy bin: Facilities still has a few stainless steel, foot-pedal compost collection bins available. Contact email@example.com to snag one.
- Put up a sign: Print this sign (pdf) and place near your compost bin.
- Make it fun: Create a sign-up sheet and reward system for volunteer haulers in your office.
- Don’t have composting yet? Now’s still a great time to get started with these resources.
- What can go in the compost bin? Any and all foods, and food-soiled paper napkins or paper towels.
By 2030, PSU’s goal is to reduce landfill-bound waste to just 10 percent of the total waste we generate, meaning 90 percent is recycled, composted, or reused. We’re doing our part to meet our Climate Action Plan goals and also help our region meet its long-term targets for waste diversion.
