Need a refresher (or a full tutorial) of which bin to sort your waste into? Do you find the recycling rules confusing? Get the answers to all your questions! After an engaging 45 minute session, you can become a Recycling Genius too!
Recycling Geniuses play a key role in addressing contamination issues in recycling and compost sorting systems across campus. Peer-to-peer education continues to be the most effective strategy to change behaviors and correct misconceptions.
The Recycling Genius training consists of a brief (yet in-depth) training on what can be recycled and composted and why. Participation by staff participating in the Green Office Program earns points on W-4 in the checklist and students participating in Green Cup can earn points for attending a sustainability event.
Once you are trained as a Recycling Genius, you can provide presentations to groups (like your office, your res hall floor, or a student group), provide educational sorting demonstrations during meal times, or volunteer at an event waste sorting station. For those interested, powerpoint presentation and demonstration kit are available for presentations.
A recording of this session will also be made available to all those who register. RSVP requested but not required: RSVP
