NC State's Waste Reduction & Recycling team then collect all of the compost from campus and take it to the NC State Compost Facility and Research Cooperative located off of Lake Wheeler Road.
The largest University-operated Aerated Static Pile system in the Southeast, this compost facility provides a stream-lined, closed loop system for NC State to recover environmental and economic resources.
After several months, this material is broken down into soil amendments, planting soil, topsoil, and other customized blends for NC State's Grounds & Building Services and farms to utilize on campus.
NC State's AgroEcology Farm receives this "new" material to grow produce for University Dining.
NC State's Grounds & Building Services also use it on lawns and playing fields across campus.
