The first step in creating a plan is to identify and set out key objectives and goals that your team would like to accomplish. Base these goals and objectives on the data collected during your waste audit and the other research you conducted. You can see the results of the audits displayed on the Dashboard. Focus in on what makes up the largest portion of your waste stream and determine how these materials can be reduced or recycled. Think about how much waste you’d like to reduce and what you’d like your recycling program to achieve for your campus.
Set a goal for what recycling rate you'd like to achieve. We recommend setting a goal of at least 35% if you are currently sitting below that mark. This will be a good starting point that is achievable but not overwhelming.
