Waste minimization pertains to trash, recycling, compost and e-waste that our university produces. In order to more properly manage waste in a sustainable way, we are trying to recycle as much as we can, and we have also begun a new composting program with help from Miller Dining. Our recycling rates keep rising, so keep it up Cats!
Recycling at MSU is funded by the student government and managed by the MSU Office of Sustainability. For details on this program visit the MSU Recycling Program website.
- E-scrap / E-waste
MSU Safety & Risk Management operates an E-Scrap program for the campus. This program is paid for by a fee charged on all university computer purchases (a percentage of purchase price). For this reason they only accept MSU property for E-Scrap recycling. For more information about E-Scrap, contact Shay Halverson, Safety & Risk E-Scrap Coordinator: 994-5678. http://www.montana.edu/wwwsrm/escrap/
Our office along with University Food Services and the College of Agriculture are researching opportunities for composting food scraps from Miller Dining Hall at MSU. A pilot study is being done right now, in order to assess if composting is viable option for MSU. Visit the UFS website for other information.
