Since February of 2016, Brandeis has seen a dramatic increase in composting in our two dining halls, as well as a substantial increase in recycling rate, due to the efforts of Sustainable Brandeis, Sodexo, and our Facilities Services Team. Our short-term goal is to increase our recycling rate to at least 40% of our waste stream (U.S. college & university average), expand composting, and reduce waste overall.
