Composting Arrives to UWEC

Another first for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire! Blugold Dining has been selected to be the first commercial composting site in Eau Claire. Our elation in participating in this exciting new program underscores our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint on this campus. A trial run for this exciting initiative will be held the week of October 6th in Davies Center. Composting bins will be available in all Davies Center dining areas as well as other locations throughout the building. All food scraps are compostable along with our new Green Mountain coffee cups, lids, cup sleeves and stir sticks. Other compostable items include our eco-friendly paper plates, brown napkins, clear plastic cups, straws and utensils. All appropriate waste placed in the bins will be taken by Veolia Environmental Services to a local composting facility to be converted into bio friendly waste. If you have any questions about the composting trial, please let us know! We look forward to hearing from you.
