Organic Waste Recycling in Dining Services

The Jewell community is now recycling all food & organic waste produced in Dining Services. Within the cafeteria, Cage, and Perch, everyone who works or eats at Jewell will separate organic, compostable materials from non-compostable. The compostable waste will be diverted from the landfill and instead taken away by Missouri Organic to be composted at their facility. We already purchase all of the compost and mulch used on our grounds from Missouri Organic, so now we are completing the cycle!

What is Compost?

Compost is an organic material, comparable in apprearance to a high quality soil. It is also a sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to using petrolium based fertilizer to help plants grow, look their best, and produce high quality food.

Is this Compostable?

Look for these posters in Dining Services to guide you as you bus your table:
