open in viewer

This IQP produced recommendations for WPI to increase overall recycling rates on campus. Our team interviewed sustainability and facilities management at WPI and third party waste collection providers. We surveyed and interviewed WPI community members consisting of students, staff, and faculty. We explored logistical variables that could effect recycling behavior, including waste bin uniformity and recycling signage. We initially explored the viability of a bottle return center on campus; however, our final suggestions relate to recycling education and infrastructure.
