WPI’s 9th Annual Waste Audit – Volunteers Needed

Wednesday, November 20, 2019
11:00 am to 3:00 pm

The Green Team will hold its 9th annual waste audit on Wednesday, November 20, from 11 am to 3 pm, on the Quad at Harrington Auditorium.  The waste audit is a process that the Green Team uses to determine the amount and types of waste and recyclables generated on campus and helps us to identify ways to make improvements.  One improvement that resulted from a waste audit two years ago was the launch of the reusable takeout container program.  Students saw hundreds of plastic clamshells from the Campus Center Food court that were used only once – and probably only for an hour – and decided to take action. 

Won’t you help?  Send an email to green@wpi.edu with the hour that you would like to work!  We guarantee that you’ll have fun and learn a lot about waste and recycling!

Note:  If rain or extreme cold is forecast, the audit will be moved to late March.
