Composting at UT Arlington since 2006
Composting classes are becoming increasingly popular in Tarrant County, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. The story quoted Meghna Tare, UT Arlington's sustainability director. She said compost is used for campus landscaping and the university’s community garden. UT Arlington began composting in 2006 with a grant from the North Central Texas Council of Governments and has expanded the program. In 2012, the university composted 61,649 pounds of food scraps, including coffee grounds and fruit peels.
