on-campus Waste Reduction.
The Sacramento City College Waste Reduction Program is made up of three parts:
Recycling prevents re-usable materials from ending up in a landfill. Not only is it a requirement, it is a good idea. As a community college we like to set an example for the community.
Consider this, on average, office workers in an educational environment generate .54 tons of paper per person, per year. Of this amount, approximately 40% could be double-sided, 55% could be re-used as scrap paper, and 10% could have never been generated if flyers were done on email or electronic bulletin boards. All of this paper could be recycled. This would mean a reduction of .30 tons and/or 100% recycling.
Reducing decreases the amount of material we regularly use.
Re-using allows us to use material that is not quite "trash" for additional purposes.
So, how do we accomplish this? We need your participation. The following categories will assist you in identifying ways to Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse.
Because different groups have different needs and methods of doing things, we are always open to suggestions on how to additionally reduce, re-use, and recycle. We encourage everyone to contact us with your ideas. You can call us at the Operations Office at 558-2543, or email us at email@example.com.
