Waste Trends

As part of our Zero Waste by 2025 goal we are tracking how much “waste” material leaves campus.  In 2015 over 2,100 tons of waste and recycled material left campus, increasing each year as our campus population grew. In 2018 we reduced our tonnage to less than 1,800 tons. Less material was sent to the landfill and diverted material tonnage also reduced (significantly due to a benchmark update by our waste hauler) although our programming efforts have increased.
