Event Details

Workshop Information:

Arizona State University is going Zero Waste. Over the next few years, the University will work to ensure that over 90% of the "waste" materials leaving campus never reach the landfill. As an education institution with over 85,000 community members generating waste on the Tempe Campus alone, this is no simple task. The process to achieve Zero Waste at an institution this size requires in-depth strategy development, analysis, and operational implementation. For the past few years, sustainability staff have been doing just that. This talk will highlight our RoadMap to Zero Waste and investigate strategies for continued development into the future. Zero Waste, It's not trash anymore.
