Engaging the Campus to Improve Recycling Participation
Thursday, August 10
1:00 to 2:30 pm ET
*Program date has been changed from the originally scheduled July 13.
How do you get people to use recycling or compost bins? Even at schools with long established collection programs, recoverable materials all too often end up in the trash. This webinar will begin with an overview of student engagement campaigns, including the tactics Stanford University implemented to increase recycling and organics collection. Attendees will also learn about brand new research from Penn State University which demonstrates how knowledge of what happens to items when they are recycled can lead to increased recycling rates.
Note: **The Penn State research presentation will only be available on the live program, August 10. Slides and recording will not be available for viewing after the program**
