Food Scrap Drop-Off Program

The Food Justice Campaign has a really cool composting program for students. Students are able to sign up to get a compost bucket on this form:

How does it work?

Students are able to pick up a small bucket with a lid to collect compostable material in their dorms/apartments. It will also come with a digital guide on what can go in the bin and what cannot. Once the bucket is full, students can go to any compost drop-off location around campus to empty out its contents.

There are a few ways for students to pick up their buckets:

  • Go to a bucket distribution event
  • Go to an SSC tabling event
  • Go to the Sustainability Resource Center during operational hours

SSC Drop-Off Stations Around Campus:

  • Seventh Market
  • MoM's Cafe/Muir Garden
