We recently started collecting compostable materials in our dining hall, residence halls, and employee break areas. However, we're not a zero waste campus and are experiencing major contamination in our compost. (Pepsi cups, yogurt cups, coffee cup lids, plastic wrap...)
In our cafeteria, the compost containers are bright green. They are clearly marked in our residence halls and office areas.
How have you reduced contamination and/or informed users how to sort better?
