Campus Compost

UGA Grounds operates its own industrial-scale compost facility where all campus leaf and limb waste as well as all pre- and post-consumer food scraps from UGA dining halls are turned into valuable fertilizer for campus greenspaces. Contact the Grounds Department for more information.

Office Compost

The Office of Sustainability runs a departmental composting program in which food scraps from break rooms (coffee grounds, fruit peels, etc.) are collected weekly and brought to UGArden campus community garden to incorporate in their compost pile. Email compost@uga.edu to learn more about or enroll in the program.

Compost for Hire

For large event composting, or if you want to compost your off-campus residential food scraps but don’t have room to do it yourself, contact Let Us Compost to learn more about the services that they offer.
