Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine waste sorting at WPI and analyze its process and efficiency. We compared WPI’s method to other institutions, interviewed people responsible for implementing sustainability at WPI, inventoried waste receptacle areas to help the Facilities Department implement uniform bins, and surveyed students, faculty, staff, and custodians to see how they felt and what they knew about recycling. Finally, we analyzed our data to develop recommendations for changing and improving WPI waste sorting.
