Waste Reduction

Using the EPA’s Waste Management Hierarchy as inspiration, Vassar is striving to reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ that we send into the waste stream either through diversion such as with recycle and compost or with our source-reduction programs. 

Unsure what to do with some ‘stuff’ you have in your dorm room, office or department? Check out some of the resources below or get in touch with us and we will help you come up with a custom solution! Many of our programs got their start because someone had an idea.
