Compost & EcoWare Changes

CSWD is no longer accepting compostable foodware or packaging at their compost facility. Therefore, food scraps and paper napkins are now the only compostable items at UVM. Volunteers are needed to staff the waste disposal stations in the Marketplace and Marche during busy hours to help students make sense of the new rules. Volunteers get a coupon for a free coffee/tea and a baked good after each shift thanks to UVM Dining! Sign up here. 

Due to the loss of over 4,300 reusable EcoWare containers last semester, UVM Dining is returning to an EcoWare exchange system this semester. Visit an Eco-Rep EcoWare table or cashier in Central, Redstone or Harris Millis dining in February to claim your free membership and learn more. Single-use containers will be available until EcoWare relaunches.

Have questions about these changes? Join @uvmecoreps for an InstagramLIVE on Monday, January 24th at 1pm for a Q&A with @cswdvt, @uvmrecycling & @uvmdining
