Clarkson Commits! Reduce and Separate Solid Waste

    1. Petition by

      Alex French

We throw away hundreds of thousands of dollars each year purchasing disposables and paying for consumer waste to be trucked away. The majority of what we send to a landfill can be recycled or composted but as a community we don't know how to reduce our waste and separate our garbage correctly. Our goal is to have the majority of the Clarkson campus fill out this form as a commitment that they will separate their garbage correctly. We will reach a "tipping point" and will create a new, responsible trend on campus.

 

For you address please list the primary building where you live or work.

To:
Clarkson University: Institute for a Sustainable Environment
I understand that our generation of solid waste is expensive and unsustainable. I commit to addressing this issue by trying to reduce waste and by correctly separating the solid waste I do create.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    1. New Goal

      You need at least 20% of a community to start a new trend. We have reduced our goal from 51% to 25% to make sure we reach this critical mass. Right now we have 16%!

      I believe that recycling is important and that our world could tremendously gain something by it.

      I firmly believe in recycling. I don't know why some people don't take the extra time each day to make sure they recycle.
