Abstract

As of January 2008, Worcester Polytechnic Institute only recycles office mix, cardboard, batteries, and computer electronics. A major component missing from WPI's current recycling program is plastic, glass, and aluminum bottle and can collection. This report summarizes the history of waste management and the benefits of recycling, reviews WPI's existing recycling practices, and presents options for implementing can and bottle collection. Based on our research, the best plan of implementation is proposed and suggested for adoption by the WPI community.
