Check out the recycling data for the last several years.
In an effort to understand the significant decline of recyclables collected in fiscal year 2019, employee and student surveys were distributed in the fall of 2019. As a result from the feedback given from those surveyed, a new recycling communication campaign was launched in January and February of 2020. The COVID pandemic significantly affected campus population, which is reflected in recycling and landfill totals.
Landfill waste can vary from year to year depending on factors such as enrollment and staff size, major events held, and construction projects happening on campus.
The overall recycling total for campus includes bulk recycling of commodities other than what individuals place in bins. The totals in this chart include things like furniture, paper documents with sensitive information, and regulated hazardous materials. Data from this chart is from FY2020
