GLRPPR Sector Resource: Zero Waste Program Case Study: Urbana City Building Complex

Title:
Zero Waste Program Case Study: Urbana City Building Complex

Abstract:
The Urbana City Building Complex is comprised of three buildings, originally constructed in the early 1960s and modified in the 1990s. The complex houses the offices of the Executive (Mayor), Community Development, and Finance departments, as well as Police and Fire Department offices and garages. The City of Urbana engaged the ISTC Zero Waste team to assist them with waste characterization and waste reduction implementation. The waste characterization study was intended to help the City of Urbana, Illinois fulfill the following objectives: Examine the composition and quantity of recyclable materials discarded; Evaluate the effectiveness of existing waste reduction and recycling programs; Provide baseline metrics to increase waste diversion rates and create directed institutional policies; Identify opportunities for increased materials recovery.
