Riverwalk Compost Program

Residential composting for students living on campus

Residents of Riverwalk Apartments are now eligible to sign up for IUPUI's first residential composting  program! 

The Riverwalk Compost Program allows residents the opportunity to collect organic waste, including food scraps, unbleached paper, plants and more, to be picked up and composted off-site. All educational information and composting materials will be provided to participants free of charge. 

This initiative is only currently available for participation in Riverwalk Apartments. However, the success of this program will demonstrate both the desire and ability of IUPUI students to compost successfully on campus! 

Program Origin and Partners

The Riverwalk Composting Program was catalyzed by student leadership from the IUPUI Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG), who passed a resolution calling for the initiation of residential composting on campus. A multi-partner collaboration, the Riverwalk Compost Program is administered by IUPUI Sustainability and the Residence Hall Association, while composting services are provided by Earth Mama Compost 

I'm a Riverwalk resident, how do I sign up?

Although all Riverwalk residents are encouraged to enroll in the compost program, we are seeking participants who are committed to composting accurately and with care. To ensure your success in doing so, please be sure to thoroughly review our program guidelines.
