New waste sorting station in the Richardson Building

Our office, in partnership with Physical Plant, is undertaking a multi-phase project to improve waste diversion on campus. The first phase of this process was a review of public spaces, including the installation of 48 new waste sorting stations on campus, greatly increasing the number of locations for composting. The second phase will focus on office-level waste diversion, and we look forward to working with the University community to help us achieve our targets! If you have any questions or feedback, please send it along to or call 204.988.7618.
