Abstract

This paper was written as a reflection paper to outline the problems and objectives that were encountered during the implementation process of a composting program which used the Enviro-Cycle 5000i Composter in Village Two at the University of Waterloo. This paper is a follow-up to the proposal paper written on the same subject. This paper establishes what was learnt during the process of implementation. It is hoped that this paper will be useful to other institutions and/or students who may wish to implement similar composting programs. Conclusion are formulated that explain what should have been improved upon in order to realize successful implementation. Recommendations are made that encourage a continued effort overseeing the implementation of a composting program in Village Two. Also recommended, are alternative means to establish a composting system in Village Two. It is hoped that this project, at the very least, has sparked an interest in composting at the University of Waterloo, and that eventually a composting program will be successfully implemented. It is believed that this project and reflection paper will prove to be of great benefit if and when it is decided that a campus-wide composting system is to be implemented at the University of Waterloo… For full text, please e-mail sustainability@uwaterloo.ca
