School & College Procurement

College campuses can be a significant source for capturing food scrap in y your community. In some towns, colleges and city leadership work together to use a single compost site-sometimes on the campus, sometimes in the community.

Many colleges and secondary school systems issue RFPS for composting and food waste diversion on their own campus. Some are combined with trash collection, and others are separate. Find here examples for college and secondary education. (This is not an endorsement of the RFPs listed, but serves as an example for drawing up your own procurement documents).
