2011 Waste Characterization Study
As part of the NRES Capstone class, a group of students performed a waste characterization study, using randomly selected buildings of varying size on campus. While all buildings recycled, the composition of the trash collected showed that only 30.3% of the trash was non-recyclable. More results of the 2011 Waste Characterization Study.
