A brief description of the plan of action to achieve waste reduction goals:

Bowdoin is a member of the EPA's WasteWise program and pledges to reduce waste by 5% in the 2012-2013 fiscal year. We believe that our 2005 data may not be as accurate as the data from our performance year, resulting in our score of 0.
