"The Composting Committee wants YOU to compost!"
The Composting Committee participates in Columbia's efforts to minimize food wastes. Currently, its composter “The Rocket" processes food scraps from Broadway and Schapiro on a purely vegetarian diet so as to reduce odor. The Rocket has a 14-day turnover period with automated temperature and mixing controls that produces high quality compost. The committee is focusing on getting the student body to directly contribute to the composter and on collecting composting from dorms. The Composting Committee meets every Sunday at 6:30pm.
