COVID-19: Essential Information

Sustainability during COVID

Sustainability During COVID

Our Dining and Facilities Services staff are dedicated to reducing waste whenever possible. During non-Covid times, we have an exeptionally high diversion rate, meaning that the majority of waste generated on campus is sorted into reusable items, recycling or compost rather then being sent to the landfill. However, with safety being our priority during Covid, there have been some necessary changes to how we sort our waste. Typically, you can compost any single-use items from the Dining Halls, but at this time we are only able to compost food waste. During Phases II and III, you are welcome (and encouraged!) to use your reusable container and mug and to bring your own reusable utensils to reduce the need for single-use items.
