Building a Sustainability Team is the first step you should take when it comes to your recycling program. This is a large project and the more hands you have on deck the better! Everyone tends to have different strengths to bring to the team, so be sure to reach out to faculty members from a variety of departments. The more diverse your group is, the more potential your program will have.
Facilities managers, grounds keepers and custodial staff are great people to have by your side as they will most likely have the best idea of what your recycling program currently looks like. They might even already have great ideas for improvement options. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to external sources such as community members for your campus' sustainability team.
