Help Cornell win in a six week competition against other Universites to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste properly everywhere on campus. Every member of the campus can participate, create events, and help us win! The competition runs February through March 30th 2019.

Cornell competes in four categories with the overall goal of reducing total waste and improving recycling.  You can choose to help in one or all of these areas.

  • Reduce Overall Waste Reduce total waste on campus in all waste streams.
  • Improve Recycling Recycle the right materials, every time
  • Food Waste & Composting Waste less food, and compost food scraps and napkins. 
  • Electronic Waste Dispose of electronic goods properly. 

Get involved by visiting for tips on how to participate as an individual, or organize and event in your residential community, unit or office to inspire sustainable behaviors.
