Blugold Dining Composting Program

This January, Blugold Dining in partnership with Veolia Environmental Services, has become one of the first commercial facilities in Wisconsin to offer composting as an environmentally friendly, waste disposal alternative.

The composting program, which has been in development over the past several months, will conserve space in local landfills as well as reduce methane emissions by turning food and other waste materials into nutrient rich soil.

Compostable items include food scraps (no bones), Green Mountain coffee cups, lids and stir sticks, eco-friendly plates and napkins, and corn based soda cups, lids, straws, knives, forks and spoons. Other items such as soup and salad containers may be added to the list of compostable items as they become available.

Guests may dispose of food and several other compostable items in green composting containers located throughout Davies Center and Hilltop Recreation Center.
