Each residence hall is equipped with a compost bucket (contact your RA or Green Chair for info on the location) that will take food scraps such as banana peels, vegetables, fruit, etc. in order to divert these compostable items from the landfill. These scraps go to local pig farms for pig feed, so if you're ever wondering if you can throw something away in the compost bin, ask yourself, would a pig be able to eat this? For those living in off-campus housing and apartments, contact Hannah Mitchell, Area Director for Residential Experience (hmitchel@linfield or 503-883-5356) to rent a compost bucket for the semester and bring sustainability to you!
