The WSU Compost Facility supports Washington State University's missions by managing the Universities organic waste stream in an efficient, effective and safe manner. The WSU Compost Facility full Strategic Plan is available as a PDF document.

The Compost Facility began operations in October 1994. The facility was the first university based compost facility to process all campus generated organic waste. Approximately 25,000 cubic yards are composted annually on 4 acres of asphalt surface. Research has been conducted at the facility to determine how feed stocks affect quality and effectiveness of inoculants and additives. The site is extensively toured by WSU compost classes, local K-12 schools and other universities.
