COTR reduces food waste through new composter

March 4, 2021
College of the Rockies will be using a composter to reduce campus food waste and greenhouse gas emissions. The composting program will initially be introduced on a limited basis and will expand through a composting education program when the campus is back at full operation. “Our long-term goal is to reduce the amount of food waste destined for the landfill to zero,” said Greg McCallum, Sustainability Committee chair at COTR. “Not only will this help to reduce our environmental footprint but will also provide our facilities crew with some amazing compost for gardens and plants on our campuses.” e-know (BC)
