Colleges and universities are continuing to drive successful sustainability plans through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, decrease in water consumption, and eliminating the amount of materials sent to landfills. The implementation of waste diversion programs has become an essential strategy to increase recycling and reduce waste on campuses.
Join Kristin Marino, Waste Managementís higher education strategic business director, as she discusses the pursuit of zero waste and strategies for greening your campus. She will provide information around Waste Managementís Green Campus Model, which will include best practices for maximizing the value of material streams, increasing diversion rates, enhancing student engagement, and funding waste diversion programs on campus.
Also hear from Christopher Kopach, University of Arizona's Assistant Vice President of Facilities Management to discover how he and his team have lead the implementation of an inclusive sustainability program that is set to increase diversion by 10 percent each year.
