Electronics Recycling on Campus
To help students and staff keep E-waste out of landfills, North Central has established an electronics recycling program.
Composting is the process through which organic material, such as food scraps, decomposes into a substance called compost or humus. This can be used to fertilize gardens and soil. At North Central College, we collect food scraps which are picked up and taken to an external composting facility. North Central uses the finished compost in the campus community garden!
Where can I compost?
North Central collects compost at Kaufman Dining Hall, The Cage, and various campus events including the Farewell Picnic and Cornerstone Picnic.

North Central College Move Out
At the end of every academic year, when residents move out of the dorms, Sustainability Central is there to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill. Make sure to properly dispose of items such as clothing, carpet, electronics, food and furniture in designated collection areas.
