It seems like HFS has set out to prove to residents that composting food and service items from their rooms is a privilege, not a right. And I thought the UW was committed to sustainability.
Composting is one of the ways that the UW stands out as “green,” in the color’s purest hue. Michael Meyering, HFS manager for Project and Sustainability, said that about 600 tons of waste was composted last school year.
This year, HFS has discontinued keeping compost bins on every floor of Terry, Lander and Haggett Halls in favor of having one bin per residence hall.
