95 tons of waste recycled at CatawbaThe Catawba College’s Office of Waste Reduction and Recycling, established within the Facilities Department just a year ago, reported 95 tons of materials from the campus were recycled during the 2007-08 year.
Led by David Najarian, a 1997 Catawba alumnus who serves as waste reduction and recycling coordinator, the new office tracks its successes by the ton. Najarian reports the 95-ton total includes 40 tons of paper, 12 tons of metal cans and glass and 43 tons of aluminum, plastics and scrap metals. Several thousand dollars of income were generated from selling the recyclables.
The 95 tons now stands as a goal for Najarian’s office to exceed during the upcoming academic year, and in doing so, he hopes to advocate recycling, the use of sustainable, green and recycled products, and to encourage campus-wide conservation and waste reduction.
Catawba has had sporadic recycling and waste reduction efforts in place on campus for two decades. The creation of Najarian’s office gives those efforts staying power and momentum to build on.
An on-campus composting program is planned, and Catawba will participate in an EPA Peer Audit which will point out areas or practices on campus where improvement is needed and also areas or best practices where Catawba is in a leadership position.
