Composting of food wastes and lab farm manure and animal bedding began at UWRF in the 1990s. Economics plays a large role in continuing these operations, as well as lessening of the environmental impact from wastes, and in the case of the lab farms, greater animal comfort.
UWRF has an active recycling program.
Recycled items include:
Student "Don't Throw It, Donate It" Move-Out Day Recycling Efforts
Food Waste Composting at University Center
Composted Bedding and Manure Handling System at Lab Farm 2
Commercially Bottled Water Removal Initiative
