Starting a campus recycling program
Question submitted on 9/4/07

How do I start a recycling program at my university?

Answer:

Freetheplanet.org has an online publication entitled "On-Campus Recycling Campaign Guide" (http://www.freetheplanet.org/resources/recycling_guide.pdf.) It has excellent suggestions for starting recycling programs on college campuses.

The National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology program has lots of information about environmental projects in the university environment. They also have case studies from campuses across the country. See http://www.nwf.org/campusecology/ for more information.

Finally, the Grassroots Recycling Network has a Campus Action campaign that includes links to successful campus recycling programs. See http://www.grrn.org/campus/campus_recycling.html.
