We Compost Schools/Institutions

We would like to commend the following We Compost partner institutions/schools for participating in a commercial compost program and being a leader in moving us towards a more sustainable world.

This program is made possible through the generosity of the Searle Funds at the Chicago Community Trust.
 
 

Gold Level Partner

Gold Level Partner businesses demonstrate the highest level of commitment to food scrap diversion by composting both pre-consumer and post-consumer food scrap. These businesses compost all kitchen trimmings during food preparation AND compost leftover plate scraps after a dish is served to students, faculty, staff, or guests. These businesses may additionally endeavor to analyze supply vs. waste and modify procedures to reduce food waste by ordering less or differently.
