How to compost

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to bring their personal food scraps to The Rocket for composting at the times listed below. We recommend that you store food scraps in a bucket with a lid. To reduce liquid and odors, line the bottom of your bucket with shredded paper. You can also sprinkle shredded paper over the food scraps each time you add more. If you have room in your freezer, you can put the scraps in the freezer to eliminate odors longer until you can deliver them. Please do not put the food scraps into the Rocket yourself but always deliver them to the student compost master for inspection first.

About the Rocket

The Rocket is a tightly sealed and closed vessel. This means a wide range of food can be put into it because odor is not an issue. This includes cooked and uncooked meat and fish, cooked and uncooked fruits and vegetables, coffee, tea, bread, eggs and other dairy are all acceptable. Basically, if you would eat it then the Rocket will take it.
