Home / Serve / Composting

You are invited to be good stewards of our earth, our "common home", by joining the Sheil Catholic Community in its composting efforts. Sheil has a compost bin on the west side of its Evanston building that is available for use by everyone thanks to Northwestern's Cats Who Compost. Bring your food waste from your dorm or home in compostable or paper bags and place it in our bins (no plastic bags, please). Cats Who Compost uses the Evanston-based services of Collective Resource Compost.
