Got food scraps?

The Office of Sustainability, in partnership with the Baltimore City Department of Public Works, resumed the community food scrap drop-off program on the Homewood and East Baltimore campuses at the start of the spring semester. Bring your fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grinds, tea bags, and more to the back side of Mudd Hall every Tuesday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. or to the entrance to CRB II every Thursday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Both locations are accessible by foot, bike, and car.

Food waste is a significant contributor to climate change if it's used for landfill or incinerated, but when composted, it enhances the soil and reduces reliance on chemical fertilizers, a process that protects the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
