Of course, we're super excited about this project, and we expect it to be successful and to expand rather quickly. In fact, we see it as a "win" for everyone involved. It benefits UW by eliminating fees for landfilling or composting these utensils, and it benefits WOOF members by providing them with costly raw materials. In addition, it will someday benefit UWGP and UW Recycling, as WOOF has agreed to begin printing compost bins for us to distribute across campus once supply and production increase. In the near future, then, this project will allow us to re-invest our recycled waste into better waste-diversion infrastructure on campus.
Thanks to Ivan Banning, UW HFS in general, UW Recycling, UW CAP, and WOOF for helping to put this together. Again, we're excited about this initiative and hopeful for its future.
