Dining Hall Composting
All dining halls at Binghamton University are involved in composting kitchen prep material. The scrap food is collected and composted on a local farm. Once composted, the material is returned to the University and used in a variety of areas by the grounds department.
Move Out Week
The office of resource management organizes the collection of unopened food when students leave after the spring semesters. Bins are located in residential communities and students can donate unopened food items they don't plan to take home. Each year, tons of food is collected and donated to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW).
Colleges and universities across the country compete to see who can recycle and reduce the most waste over a twelve week period. More information about the program is here.
