Composting - Post Consumer Organic Waste

Starting in late fall 2023, Villanova University is offering an organics waste collection pilot program for specific locations on campus.  

This program is an opt-in program, where participants must undergo minimum composting knowledge training, or have the ability to monitor organics waste bins to prevent contamination from trash or other non-compostable materials.  Since this material will be composted via wind row composting on a local farm, there is no tolerance for contamination from trash.
