The Think Green Campus Model

Imagine walking through a massive university campus and seeing all the opportunities to “go green” jump out at you.

You walk by the dining area and envision an organics recycling program coming to life. You stop by student housing and learn about “move-in/move-out,” which arranges for unwanted items left behind by students to go to charity. You visit the quad and see solar powered trash compactors using energy from the sun to contribute to a more sustainable environment.

Now imagine taking that tour in the comfort of your home, your office or even your favorite coffeehouse.

Here at Waste Management, we’ve developed the Think Green Campus Model and an interactive Map that’s available for you to explore (right now) at http://www.wm.com/map. Click on the building of your choice and see what opportunities await. You can also search by material stream or diversion program. It’s fun, it’s easy and it helps educate the educated.

Bring the green campus to your fingertips!
