Compostable Takeout Containers on Campus

Our Commitment

All non-branded food service locations are equipped with compostable takeout containers. When disposed of correctly they are able to breakdown into carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds and biomass in small pieces in about 90 days. Compost works because millions of tiny microbes consume the waste and transform the organic material into compost. Compost has many beneficial uses including fertilizing and improving soil health—and it does not leave toxic residue behind because it is already organic.
