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

Jefferson is currently planning waste reduction initiatives, including community clean-ups and raising awareness about litter on campus.

Additionally, the college is the recipient of a 2012 Cigarette Litter Prevention Program and has taken part in a national program to reduce the impact of cigarette butt litter. In its first year, Jefferson will target cigarette butt litter through Jefferson’s Downtown Campus with a concentrated and sustained effort. Jefferson bears the expense of cigarette litter cleanup at entrances, exits, and adjacent sidewalks and parking lots. This program allows the college to redirect the focus of cigarette clean up to other maintenance and operation initiatives around the campuses.
