GLRPPR Sector Resource: Zero Waste Program Case Study: ISTC Headquarters Building

Title:
Zero Waste Program Case Study: ISTC Headquarters Building

Abstract:
Founded in 1985, the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) has helped thousands of organizations and citizens implement sustainable solutions to environmental and economic challenges. ISTC's mission is to encourage and assist citizens and businesses to prevent pollution and reduce waste to protect human health and the environment in Illinois and beyond. ISTC's vision is to be a catalyst for change toward more sustainable technologies, processes, and practices through our integrated program of research, demonstration projects, technical assistance, and communication. The purpose of creating, implementing, testing, and refining a pilot Zero Waste program at ISTC was to investigate the feasibility of moving towards a Zero Waste lab. The primary objective was to explore the waste diversion activities of the Champaign office, with the aim of better practicing what we preach. The secondary objective was to provide the facility with an accurate and precise measurement of our landfill diversion rate.
