EC UNO Participates in Waste Survey to Determine Possible Recycling Solutions

As part of the UNO sustainability initiative, members of EC UNO participated in a waste survey organized by Shannon Bartelt-Hunt, PKI, on March 7 and 8. The purpose of the survey was to understand the quantity and composition of waste generated on the UNO campus. Results will be used to determine ways in which the UNO campus can reduce waste output and recycle waste that is not currently being recycled.

Results from the survey can be viewed here.
