Waste Characterizations

IMG_7333-760x570Waste characterizations provide a great opportunity to learn first-(gloved)hand about the waste cycle and related issues on campus.

Our purpose is to characterize the waste that we are sending to the landfill to see where we need to improve or expand waste reduction, recycling, and composting programs. These characterizations will allow us to develop useful and interesting data on the waste stream that will help us reduce landfill waste from campus, with the goal of achieving Zero Waste*.
