Campus Sustainability Month - Waste Reduction Challenge

The average individual generates around 6 pounds of waste per day, and about 40% of all waste is in the form of food. Each person disposes of approximately a ton of waste per year. Yikes! Thank you for taking the first step to being more conscious of your personal waste output. Your actions matter. You are helping to combat climate change and to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills. We have the power to make a change.

Single-Use Mask (PPE) Recycling

In 2020, in response to a rapid increase in disposable mask use, approximately 50 collection boxes were deployed across campus to help students, faculty, and staff recycle face coverings and keep them from entering the landfill stream. Recyclers were asked to put the masks in a sealed bag, place the bag into the box, and then sanitize or wash hands after completing the drop-off.
