- Middlebury diverts about 65 percent of its waste from landfills through recycling, reuse, and composting. We recycle plastics, glass, and paper, as well as electronics, CFL bulbs, and other less conventional recyclables. Items left behind after students move out are brought to the center and stored in a reuse trailer, which is open to the College community. You can find dishes, binders, clothing, furniture, electronics, and much more in the reuse trailer!
- One hundred percent of pre and post-consumer food waste from dining halls as well as paper napkins, are composted on campus. There are also compost bins being installed in several of the dorms on campus. We make more than 300 tons per year, and it is used on campus and at the organic farm.
- Approximately 15 percent of the power used in the center comes from the wind turbine right outside.
