Olin Compost Update

With another semester behind us, it’s time to update our composting totals. For those of you not familiar with Olin’s composting program, we compost all fruit and vegetable waste during food preparation in Olin’s dining hall. The program is in its 5th year and it is run by staff and student volunteers.

Fall 2012 data:

  • Total collected: 4,172 lbs (2 tons)
  • Avg daily pick-up: 71 lbs
  • Total composted (Spring 2009- Fall 2012): 23,783 lbs

Should be another good year for our community garden!
