It is official: Tulane Green Club with help from our Compost Captains have constructed 4 brand new compost bins behind Paterson residence hall. We're happy to say that the bins were built using used wood from Bruff Commons. We'll start collecting biodegradable waste from the dorms coming up soon.
So if you have fruit or veggie waste that you'd like to compost, bring it on by! Make sure to sprinkle 2 parts dead plant matter ("brown matter") for every 1 part food matter ("green matter"). That's to make sure the compost has carbon from the plants to balance out the nitrogen from food.
Check out some photos of the build:

I'd like to thank all our awesome Compost Captains, as well as people who just showed up to lend a helping hand. We couldn't have done it without you guys!
