Boston College Host Forum on Recycling and Waste Diversion

Boston College recently hosted a major forum on recycling that focused on waste diversion efforts at Massachusetts colleges and universities. The event featured panel presentations on food recovery initiatives in order to find best practices. 40 people, including college and universities administrators, state environmental officials and representatives of organizations that promote sustainability were all in attendance to protect the environment. Boston College Dining Services Director Beth Emery noted that in the near future “we are excited to share some of the best practices we learned at the forum with interested students groups so that we can continue to work together towards zero waste.”

This forum is part of a regular series of programs sponsored by RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts, which helps businesses and institutions maximize recycling, reuse and composting opportunities to decrease environmental impact, cut costs, improve employee morale and meet customer demands for sustainable practices.”
