      Bishop's claim to sustainability fail in the field of waste management. There is no functional compost system for everyday waste from students- all compostable waste goes in the trash, where it accumulates in landfills. When organic materials break down in landfills, they cannot properly decompose, and as a result releasing a ton of greenhouse gas emissions such as methane and co2 that would otherwise be omitted with an effective compost system. This petition is to create an effective system of composting on campus, providing bins in various locations and having the waste be sent to Sherbrooke’s composting system.
