Waste Reduction Work Group

Reducing our campus' landfilled waste with a focus on reusing, reducing, recycling and composting
In this Section

We are staff and students who work to reduce the waste UW-Stout sends to the landfill.

What does the Waste Reduction Work Group do?

  • Ensure compliance with UW-Stout's Waste Reduction Administrative Procedure, mandating recycling and compost receptacles at all waste collection locations on campus
  • Audit our waste streams (recycling, compost, and trash) to identify improvements in waste reduction
  • Provide waste-related education and training for campus students and employees
  • Work to build on UW-Stout's success with waste reduction

This committee is co-chaired by Sarah Rykal, Sustainability Manager and Darrin Witucki, Director of Student Centers. Email us at recycle@uwstout.edu.
