Seattle University makes on-campus composting easy. All to-go ware is made out of compostable plant-derived plastic or paper. Check out the list below of what can go in SU's compost bins.
- Any food waste
- Grab-and-go food packaging with the ‘Express’ or ‘Bon Appetit’ logos from campus cafes and catering
- Plant-derived plastic disposable utensils, cups, and straws from campus cafes and catering
- All paper to-go ware from campus restaurants and catering
- Tea bags
- Napkins and paper towels
- Grass, weeds, and leaves
- EXCEPTIONS: Most coffee cups from off-campus cafes go in the recycling bin because they are plastic lined or made with non-compostable glues. Ask a barista if cups are compostable, or use your own resuable mug!
