Our composting program is off and running! Our initial implementation begins with the compost of paper towels. Signage and identified “green” receptacles have been installed in all academic restrooms.  Paper towels in restrooms are one of the largest wastes produced on our campus. We are excited to offer this opportunity to all users in our support of campus sustainability. Please help us make composting a success at UW Tacoma!
