As we reflect on milestones (cinder blocks?) of 2017 for recycling organic waste at Baldwin Wallace University (BW), this is a great time of year to reflect. We cleared 59,000 pounds or 55 cubic yards of organic waste recycled. Whether it is about the 39,726 pounds or nearly 29 cubic yards of compost (that broken down from the raw waste weight of 59,000 pounds) directly used to benefit education or the 204 cinder blocks removed to shape a new 35-foot by 35-foot growing area raised bed, truly the use of organic waste for higher education has inspired my team at BW.Read more
