The Problem Waste on college campuses balloons at the end of each academic year. For example, at the University of New Hampshire, the average 25 tons of trash per month jumped to 125 tons when students moved out in the spring. Thousands of reusable or recyclable items, including electronics containing carcinogens like lead and mercury, were sent to landfills. This is a recurring problem at universities nationwide. What’s more, it represents a fundamentally broken pattern of consumption – using Earth’s finite resources to create toxic trash that poisons people and pollutes the planet. If we don’t change course, we face resource depletion and growing toxicity in our air, soil, water, and bodies.
