On-Campus Composting: Creating an Opportunity for Students to Choose Where their Food Waste Goes
Rebecca’s project is a pilot initiative to provide students within Hilltop Apartments the option to compost their food scraps instead of throwing them away. Students that sign up to be apart of the program will be provided a compost bin and resources on what is suitable to go into the bin.
