Learning From Experience to Reboot Collection Programs

Case studies of how campuses have revamped and updated under-performing collection programs

Original Stream Date:  August 13, 2015

Webinar Summary:

Collection systems are not forever. Recycling and organics recovery efforts have to stay current with industry trends and the needs of the campus. This program highlighted examples of universities that have revamped or in some cases started from scratch to remodel collection programs to improve recovery going forward. Presentations included office file clear out (University of South Carolina), introducing Big Belly collection bins (UC Merced), collecting coffee grounds (Arizona State) and creating a campus-wide style, label and color standard for recycling bins (George Washington University).
