Name of the campaign:
MU Low Waste Initiative

A brief description of the campaign, including how students and/or employees were engaged:

During the summer of 2016, MU Campus Facilities began a 10-week process of replacing wastebaskets in cubicles and private office spaces with desk-side blue recycling bins that have smaller black bins attached for trash.

A trio of larger bins — one for plastics, aluminum and glass, one for paper and one for trash — will be placed in central locations in each building.

Employees are now responsible for sorting their trash and recycling from their personal bins into the larger bins of each building. Cleaning services will no longer remove trash or recycling from cubicles and offices.

Objectives:
1. Cost savings from reduction in labor force
