Gorilla Compost ensures proper cycling of Macdonald Campus' organic wastes by collecting compostable matter at convenient on-campus locations and converting it to usable fertilizer for the campus' community gardens. Less landfill waste, less artificial fertilizer used, one more step towards a sustainable campus and planet! All this is possible with the help of awesome volunteers!

Every semester we hold e-Waste Collections to give the campus a means of disposing their electronics and batteries in an environmentally friendly way, we also hold various workshops to teach students and staff alike about how to compost in your home! Keep an eye out for these and more activties that aim to help make your actions at Mac greener!
