Our Campus Composts!
Our mission and vision at USCC includes colleges and universities as we seek to divert natural resources from needless disposal, create healthy soils and organic matter and mitigate climate change through COMPOST!
Campuses are becoming leaders when it come to institutions taking on composting because students and faculty are leading the way. If your campus is already composting, contribute and info and news to us in the form below so we can share it with the community. If you’re not yet, avail yourself of all of these resources so that your campus can divert organic resources to beneficial use in soils and compost!
