Members of the Student Governing Association (SGA) will be getting their hands dirty next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 22-24, in Kaufman Dining Hall while performing a food waste audit during meal times. They’ll be stationed in the plate return area of the dining hall to help scrape plates and communicate information about a composting program to other students. The food waste they gather will be weighed and the data used to advance the possibility of composting the College’s food waste. During those three days all the food waste from Kaufman will be composted.

Many of the April 19-23 student-led Earth Week events required compiling information and calculating results. During Monday’s “Lights Out” event, students were asked to turn off their overhead dorm lights for one hour, 7-8 p.m. This single event saved 36,480 watts of electricity and 47.31 lbs. of carbon emissions. During the recycling competition on Wednesday, trash and recycling was collected from each dorm. Students in Schneller Hall had recycled the highest percentage (39.4) of all the trash that was collected from their dorm and won the contest.
