Miami holds an Ohio EPA class IV composting license, which allows it to compost yard waste. The university rents a tub grinder to shred all yard waste except grass clippings. The shredded material is stored in piles, and is eventually reused as a landscaping mulch.
Grass is mowed with mulching mowers and the clippings remain on the lawn.
