Composting at NCRC

The University of Michigan Waste Management Services began composting yard waste many years ago. The program was expanded to include pre-consumer (prep or kitchen waste) in 1997. In 2012 the program expanded again to include a pilot where post-consumer waste (uneaten or leftover food) was collected at the Michigan League and eventually U-M Dining Halls for composting as well. The success of the program allowed the inclusion of certified compostable containers and utensils to the composting list.

NCRC has adopted the program. All post-consumer waste such as compostable plates, cups, flatware, bowls, napkins, and take out containers along with your uneaten or unwanted food can be placed in specially marked bins at the usual locations. The success of the program at NCRC depends on you and keeping contamination (usually plastics or plastic lined containers) out of the bins. The most common contaminants are little things like salt and pepper or mustard, mayo, and ketchup packets. Look for posters indicating what can or cant be included for composting and remember, when in doubt, throw it out.

What can you compost?

SHARED USE GUIDELINES

Meals on Wheels

You can help the Meals on Wheels program to reach the 1 in 6 seniors who might not know where their next meal is coming from by joining the NCRC Meals on Wheels Team!

The Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels food is prepared by and staffed by University of Michigan employees. The NCRC team delivers meals every Friday to home-bound residents. The more staff volunteers we have, the less of a time commitment we have. Currently a volunteer is assigned to deliver meals once every four to six weeks. Our route typically takes 45 minutes to an hour to deliver.

If you are interested please contact Elaine Lauerman at 734-763-2923 or ekl@med.umich.edu.
