About Organics on Campus

Plant Operations now has the capacity to accommodate Organics collection near all food service locations and for use in small to medium sized staff lounges and kitchenettes. Countertop, Curbside and Multistream receptacle will be serviced by Custodial staff.

Sorting it right

Contamination is when an item is placed in the wrong stream. Be aware that sorting waste at home is different than on-campus, the UW waste programs accept different items. Please consult the organics sorting guide when you are unsure if an item can be placed into the organics stream.
