Talking Trash

Hopefully everyone is having a smooth first full week. All of you have probably noticed our many garbage receptacles around the dining areas. It may seem confusing at first, but please take the time to separate and throw your trash items in the appropriate bins. Signs with pictures and descriptions of what can be disposed of in each are located on top and on the front of the bins. All food scraps are compostable along with our eco-friendly paper plates, brown napkins, clear plastic cups, straws, utensils and salad to-go containers.

UWEC is proud to be selected as the first commercial composting site in Eau Claire and we are trying our best to become more environmentally responsible and conforming to our University’s strategic plan to become an eco-friendly operation. If you have any questions about what you can compost or recycle please let us know!
