ABSTRACT
The article reports that Dining Services at the University of California (UC) in Davis has launched a program called Sustaining Our Future. The program includes an improved composting program that Dining Services believes will close the loop between growing, purchasing and wasting. The new composting program is a collaborative effort among UC-Davis Student Housing, the university's Solid Waste Division, the campus's R4 Recycling program and a local company called Jepson Prairie Organics.
