RE: [GreenYes] recycling on university campuses
Susan,
 
Here is some information about an organization that specializes in recycling programs on colleges and university campuses:
 
In December, 1994, the California Collegiate Recycling Council (CCRC) http://www.crra.com was formed as a technical council of California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA)Their purpose is to address the specific needs of waste prevention and recycling programs on colleges and university campuses. They also plan to provide CRRA with recycling and academic contacts within colleges and universities. They believe that by providing aggressive waste prevention and recycling programs on campus they set a positive example for the students they're education, as well as, provide enlightened examples of applied resource recovery and waste prevention activities in the institutional setting. For more information, CONTACT: Julie Muir, phone (650)321-4236 juliem@pssi.stanford.edu
 

CCRC GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

Increase communication among California colleges and universities on waste reduction and recycling related issues.

Establish localized network to assist colleges and universities with establishing and expanding programs.

Integrate waste reduction and recycling concepts into academic curriculum.

Subject: [GreenYes] recycling on univeristy campuses

Could any of you provide me with your insights regarding the best way to promote on-campus recycling, and initiate such programs?
I have seen programs that use the students (through an environmental group) but of course the administration has to buy in as well... Any input on what approach is successful, how to sustain such a program,  and any examples you could provide would be most appreciated! Thanks!
