Not too long after that, however, itwas asked to leave the Richmond Field Station as well, in part because the then managers of the field station were not fans of the strong odor emanating from the bins. Unfortunately, the Berkeley Worms money ran out around this time. Itwould now have to charge for waste pickup, which Cal Dining was not able or willing to pay for. These events contributed to Berkeley Worms decision to rename itselfthe Bay Worms and transition itsmaterials to the Alameda Point Collaborative tobecome a noncampus entity. After Berkeley Worms stopped collecting, the only composting the campus engaged in was green waste, or biodegradable waste composed of things such as plant trimmings, because the city of Berkeley did not acceptfood waste at the time.
Berkeley Worms secured a grant from Alameda County to collect food waste from dining halls, free of charge, using a modified dairy feed truck. After loading the food waste into the truck, itgrounded up the waste, transported it and spread it over bins of literal worms located at the Gill Tract. After the worms broke down the food waste, Berkeley Worms would harvest, bag and sell Puma Creepers Black And Oatmeal
acing compost bins directly in front of diners to make them more conscious of their contribution to the waste stream. These more recent efforts ofthe Compost Alliance, Cal Dining and CRRS, however, are not the first time groups have implemented composting programs. In 1992, before many current UC Berkeley students were even born, students and community members founded the composting groupBerkeley Worms. According Puma Sneakers Rihanna Creepers
There was also no staff, funding or a location to which to send the food waste and,therefore,no reason to start a major composting program. This remained the situation until Cal Dining began itscomposting efforts and Velvet Puma Fenty Creepers Claire Evans founded the Compost Alliance. There is still much more to do to bring composting to the entirecampus and further reduce food waste atits sources. Graciela Guerrero, supervisor.
