Does the institution have a program to reduce residence hall move-in waste?:

A brief description of the program:
The NSCC campus in Truro is the only NSCC campus with dormitories. At our Truro campus we have a seven-tiered waste disposal system and that is implemented in the dormitories. When students are moving in they have all of the available waste disposal facilities available to them: Compost, garbage, cardboard/ paper, metal, recyclables, redeemables and hazardous materials. The Compost, recyclables, metal and cardboard are all taken away on a weekly basis making it more convenient for the students to properly dispose of their waste.
