The whole West Nottingham community participates in our food waste diversion program. Each week members of our community deliver our food waste receptacles to the Kilby Farm methane digester. We clean them and return them to dorms and the dining hall. We divert over 6 tons of food waste over the course of an average school year. We reduce our carbon and methane footprint and contribute to the production of green energy and fertilizer for the farm. The farm uses the energy and fertilizer to produce the milk and ice cream we buy from Kilby Cream, a wonderful example of a closed-loop system. Mr. Kilby donated the dairy case in our dining hall where we keep our bottled milk. The glass bottles also help us to reduce our plastic usage and waste.
