Since fiscal year 2015, Brandeis has seen a dramatic increase in composting in our two dining halls and across campus through the efforts of the Office of Sustainability, Sodexo and our facilities services team.
Do you know?
- All food scraps, both in the kitchen during meal prep and plate scrapings from meals, are composted in Lower Usdan and Sherman dining halls.
- Sherman's kosher plates are composted.
- Event and office composting are expanding throughout 2018-19.
- As of January 2019, we are also committing to all-compostable tableware in our catering services.
