Abstract

The University of Waterloo and its affiliate colleges have a goal to reduce waste on campus, both to comply with provincial legislation and to reduce waste processing expenses. This study was conducted as part of a campus-wide audit to estimate the composition and amount of waste generated on campus. Auditing will help provide insight into the composition and amount of waste accumulates at St. Paul’s United College Residence. Recommendations will be offered based on the results of this study on how to improve waste reduction efforts to increase associated environmental and economic benefits. The purpose of this report is to provide the facility being audited and Patti Cook, the University of Waterloo’s Waste Management Coordinator, with documentation concerning how much and what kind of waste is being generated. The results of this document will help administration become aware of the waste management in the St. Paul’s facility. Also, it is hoped that the recommendations made in this document will be used to help create better disposal programs to reduce waste in the future… For full text, please e-mail sustainability@uwaterloo.ca
