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

We are actively promoting recycling efforts on campus and were pleased to receive a grant from Alcoa to purchase new recycling bins, which we have been using at athletic events.

We were able to create a trend line using 4 years worth of data to create an estimate for recycling. We are proud that our recycling numbers include light ballasts, batteries, plastics, glass, paper, shredded paper, and a few other miscellaneous items. We did not have enough data to create a trend line for "weight of materials disposed as garbage," and so we used the performance year number. We found the performance year number by working with our university's trash company, as noted in another category.
