WASTE IS A BIG PROBLEM. University students generate thousands of tons of waste every year, much of which is still useable. But when the only option is a dumpster, everything looks like trash – so it all gets sent to landfills and incinerators. The next year, students buy many of the same goods new from big box stores.
WE CAN SOLVE IT. Student groups at campuses nationwide are working to stop the cycle of waste – and the Post-Landfill Action Network is helping them do it. We provide tools and resources to create student-led, self-sustaining programs that keep useable goods on campus where they belong, while generating revenue to fund new campus sustainability initiatives.
ZERO WASTE IS POSSIBLE. Through our cooperative network of sustainable business partners, we make it possible to recycle far more than just paper and plastic. Combined with student-led waste reduction efforts, we're helping universities take the first steps towards zero waste campuses and a post-landfill planet.
