Begin an effective waste reduction program.
The program should eventually be run campus-wide, but run a pilot to first sort out the logistics and garner additional support:
1) Establish a recycling committee for 3 buildings (classrooms, labs, dormitory).
2) Conduct a waste audit to determine waste composition and volume of materials, what portion can be recycled, re–used, reduced, or eliminated and what recyclable material could be substituted for non–recyclable materials currently in use.
3) Have each committee define their recycling goals and create actionable programs to achieve those goals.
4) Run the programs.
5) Conduct a waste audit to determine program's participation rate.
