UW Tacoma Campus Composting


UW Tacoma launched a composting program in late 2016. Facilities Services reported restroom paper towels were generating a large amount of waste. Paper towels were estimated as contributing from 30 - 35% of trash generated by non-retail spaces on campus.


Facilities Services have since placed bins inside restrooms to collect paper towel, and signs have also been displayed to promote the proper disposal of paper towels.
