Where it all started

5 R’s of Waste Reduction: Rot

New Bins on Campus

The 5 R's of waste reduction continued...

Rot refers to composting or using the green bin program for organic waste rather than throwing it into the garbage.

Last year, over 80% of the waste on campus that went to landfill could have been recycled or put in the compost. We have lots of great opportunities to improve that this year!
