Implemented in 2010, Campus Dining has "grown" their composting program to compost up to 80% of the trash generated at Valsetz Dining Hall! Leftover food and compostable paper products are all go into 65 gallon containers that are picked up daily by Brandt's Sanitary Service. Brandt's, in turn hauls the compostables to the Pacific Region Compost Facility (PRC) near Camp Adair. At PRC, the waste is then converted into plant and agriculture compost!
