Each year the University of Victoria diverts at least 400 metric tonnes of food waste from Hartland Landfill. UVic's food waste is picked up by reFuse Resource Recovery and sent to an industrial composting system in Cobble Hill. This system can take many items that you would normally not put in a backyard composter, for example all meat and dairy products, paper towels and paper coffee cups (lids removed!).
