CSUSM has operated a pre-consumer compost collection service for many years. We collect coffee grounds and other pre-consumer waste (such as vegetable trimmings from Dining Services) for composting on campus. During regular semester periods we average 3,500 lbs of material (monthly) . In the summer and during winter break when the campus population is significantly lower, we collect an average of 1,000 lbs of material (monthly).
Currently service is not available for post consumer compost processing, so we are doing all we can right now. We hope services for full service to be available in 2019.
