Thanks to expansion and improvement of their campus-wide composting program, the Harvard Law School community recovered the MOST COMPOST EVER in the month of March 2012.
The elaborate set-up for recovering food scraps at the new Wasserstein Caspersen Clinical Center, as well as paper towels from Gropius dormitory rest rooms, yielded almost 10 tons of clean organic refuse which was picked up by our collection vendor, Save That Stuff, and composted at Brickends Farm in Hamilton, MA.
Special thanks go to the entire HLS Facilities Team working on WCC, especially Mark Nystrom, John Holleran, John Arciprete, Gene O’Connor, Russell Keyes, Becky Andreasson, Matt McConnell and Tony Castro; the FMO Custodial team led by Joao Amado; and Evan Eppler and staff at Restaurant Associates.
Last but not least, Kate Cosgrove of the Office for Sustainability has done the best job on campus creating, publishing and posting clear, concise and attractive guidelines for the recycling, composting and trash stations in every classroom, office and lounge in the stunning and well-used facility.
As Bridget Sweet of Environmental Health and Safety said, “HLS’s recycling signs are clear enough for my pre-school aged kids to understand.”
