Let’s Talk Trash
The State University of New York College of Environmental Science & Forestry (SUNY-ESF) had implemented their own waste audit and were very unsatisfied with their results. They reached out to partner with CleanRiver to help create a better program. The list of successes are something to be celebrated:
- Waste diversion increased to 48%
- A 34% decrease in trash by weight and a 46% increase in recycling
- A decrease in trash pick-up from 5 days to 3 days a week (big cost savings)
- In 2020 SUNY-ESF won the Recycling Leadership Award from the New York State Association for Reduction, Reuse and Recycling
Students seamlessly embrace the habit of waste reduction, fostering a culture of sustainability that extends beyond the school gates. they become change agents, inspiring their families and communities to adopt eco-friendly practices. This perception radiates throughout the community, as schools are celebrated not just for academic excellence but also for nurturing a generation of environmentally-aware citizens. Empower your school with a recycling program and lay the groundwork for an eco-friendly, responsible future.View the SUNY ESF Case Study
