Franklin and Marshall Update

26 Jan 2015 1:13 PM | Tom Simpson

Food Waste collection continues to go well at Franklin and Marshall. The trend has been that we are capturing more food waste than last year, averaging about 8 tons when school is in session. The bulk of the waste is from pre- and post-consumer sources at the Dining Hall, but we also collect at some weekly and occasional events as well as some satellite areas. We are also looking at options for capturing food waste in Sodexo's retail food sales sites on campus. The food waste collection has been a major factor in the significant drop in trash weights that we have realized.
