MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- The Environmental Protection Agency is recognizing Kansas State University for its dining hall composting program.

A ceremony was held last week at the Kramer Dining Center to recognize the effort. Through the composting program, the university takes leftover food waste from the dining halls to be composted. University researchers use the compost for things like field and greenhouse experiments.

The university reduced food waste by a total of 61.8 tons from 2010 to 2012.
