Coordinator - Recycling & Solid Waste
• Solid Waste Working Group - Comprised of stakeholders from Facilities Management, Facilities Development, Supply Chain Management, Environmental, Health & Safety, Residence Services, Students’ Union, Residence Students’ Association and the Office of Sustainability. The group works collaboratively to develop and implement initiatives in support of the University of Calgary’s waste goal, to become a net-zero waste campus. This past year the working group met quarterly, focusing on strategic planning (Recycling and Waste Management Plan), capacity building (Data Management with ARCHIBUS), expanding existing programs (composting) and introducing new programs (Paper Recycling Pilot in Residences).
• Recycling and Waste Management Plan – this recently completed plan supports the University of Calgary’s strategic goals of achieving zero waste and encompasses all University recycling and waste streams. Within its ultimate strategic goal of becoming a net zero waste campus, the University of Calgary is committed to reduce the University’s solid waste contribution to landfills to 80/20 (80% diversion / 20% disposal) by 2020.
