Coordinated by the Environmental Center, with the support of Physical Facilities, Garbage on the Green utilizes student volunteers to conduct a campus waste audit. The event provides volunteers with a fun and interactive educational opportunity about waste reduction, recycling and litter-prevention. Having a direct experience with campus sustainability, events like Garbage on the Green give students, faculty and staff a dynamic perspective on the ecological impact they make in their everyday lives


We will not be hosting Garbage on the Green in 2016. This was not an easy decision, but this year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sawmill Slough Preserve and we wanted to focus our attention on celebrating that important campus resource. We have a lot of other great events planned for October, we hope you are able to join us!
