Construction of UConn's new agricultural waste composting facility is complete! The facility is located in the Spring Manor Farm area, north of the prison and off of Route 32. It was sited by a Compost Facility Site Advisory Committee which considered hydrography, aquifer protection, the slope of the land, and population density in the siting process.
The facility is expected to see 10-15 trucks per week delivering solid manure and 1-2 trucks every other week delivering liquid manure. There will also be large deliveries of leaves and other landscaping wastes, particularly during the late fall and early spring.
