The food waste audit was conducted by Earth House with assistance from Dining Services and the Dining Services Committee.
It was a student project and generated data that shows that approx. 1000 pounds of food per week is wasted at the Commons.

Are you referring to plastic forks or other plastic items in the Commons. FYI - plastic forks can't be recycled by our recycling hauler.

RecycleMania results are officially out April 17th
