While the AS Department of Public Worms at UC Santa Barbara has already massed a collection of compost drop-off bins on campus, the same resources are much less accessible to students living off-campus, such as in the student apartments.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, over 30% of what is thrown away is in fact compostable material, and composting "reduces methane emissions from landfills and lowers your carbon footprint." When tired college students are not easily given access to important resources, such as compost bins, their food scraps are likely to end up in landfills. 

Thus, we propose as follows:

The UCSB AS Department of Public Worms add and maintain three new compost drop-off bins: one by Santa Ynez, one by San Joaquin/Santa Catalina, and one by Sierra Madre by Fall of 2022.
