UBC launches composting for campus residents

UBC now provides composting for more than 1,000 campus apartment and townhouse homes in partnership with University Neighbourhoods Association.

A pilot version of the program was the first in Metro Vancouver to bring compost service to multi-unit residential dwellings. In the last year alone, the program has diverted nearly 50,000 kg of organics from the Metro Vancouver landfill to UBC’s in-vessel composter, reducing waste, greenhouse gas emissions and saving on fertilizer costs.
