A Look Behind the Scenes of Waste and Recycling at SU

Join the SU Sustainability Management group to learn what happens to your recyclables on and off-campus. This session will reinforce SU’s goals for increasing recyclables on campus and reduce contamination before it is sent to the recycling center. These figures also determine the ranking of the University in The Campus Race to Zero Waste, the annual recycling and waste reduction competition where colleges and universities compete from across North America.

Led by the University’s Sustainability Coordinator, Melissa Cadwell.

Next session: TBD
