Rocket Composter

Rocket Composter


The Rocket Composter was an initiative led by the students of the Fort Lewis College Environmental Center. At the time it was installed, the composter was one of only nine composters on college campuses nationwide. Every year the composter saves tens of thousands of pounds of discarded food waste from ending up in landfills.

The Rocket Composter is just one of the Fort Lewis College Environmental Center's many projects. Learn more about the FLC Environmental Center.
