Composting services for campus events designed to limit waste.
Please excuse that our Green Events program is not running at this time. In order to ensure our students’ safe return to campus, Auraria leaders have decided that large gatherings and gatherings that provide food should be restricted until further notice. The ASCP has taken this as an opportunity to reconfigure our event compost services and build back better!
In April the students voted in favor for the Compost Referendum, which raised student fees by $3. Each one of those dollars collected will go directly towards compost expansion across campus. With the limited events status and the expansion of ASCP compost programming potential, the ASCP has found this to be the perfect time to be intentional about how we would like to approach events in the future.
Stay tuned for ASCP compost expansion updates via our socials and keep an eye out for new compost infrastructure across campus. And, as always, if you want to get involved with the ASCP, check out our Eco-Reps program and our Sustainability Series!
The ASCP is proud to announce our Green Events services! This is an important step in achieving our campus-wide waste diversion goal of 35% by 2022 and will go a long way in reducing the Auraria Campus’ ecological impact.
