Learnings in Advancing Sustainability, Measuring Progress, and Keeping Campus Clean with Smart Waste & Recycling Solutions

Now more than ever, campuses are creating a comprehensive approach to increase their commitment to sustainability, efficiency, and the environment. This is embodied by a variety of initiatives, mandates, and plans across the country, and is grounded by motivated faculty and students alike.

Central to sustainability and environmental impact is waste management. How can you showcase commitment to sustainability via recycling programs, incentives, and education outside the classroom? Are you faced with recycling mandates associated with state funding? Have campus goals been set in regards to waste reduction, the introduction of compost streams, and an overall reduced GhG footprint? How can these programs be implemented at scale, with ease, and in a measurable manner? What are the waste related goals and initiatives on your campus? How can your campus leverage technology available to use to achieve these sustainability goals?

In this session, we will discuss case studies and lessons learned from colleges and universities who have implemented smarter solutions to manage their waste and recycling on campus. While diverse in geography, student body, and size, all campuses highlighted are motivated by the prospect of using smart, connected solutions to address requirements, track progress, and achieve goals all while creating a cleaner campus.
