College of the Siskiyous is committed
to the three R's of Recycling:
Reducing, Reusing, Recycling
Total tonnage disposed: 75 tons
Annual Per Capita Disposal (lbs/employee/day): 0.5
50% equivalent per capita disposal target: 1.6
We disposed of 75 tons of waste in 2010. In order to meet the required 50% diversion for our campus, we would need to have the per capita disposal at 1.6 pounds or below. We are well below the expected per capita disposal with an estimated .5 lbs per employee per day.
Many thanks to the COS Foundation for awarding the recycling program a grant for fall 2008. We were able to purchase deskside containers and large collection cans for the buildings for our paper collections.
