A waste audit was performed in Spring of 2012 at CI. The audit examined exactly what our waste stream consisted of in buildings including Bell Tower, Sage Hall, and Aliso Hall. It is important to note, the building type will reflect different waste generation depending on its use. It revealed that by weight, 66% of the waste collected was paper, 10% was plastic, 9% was cardboard, 8% was trash, 7% was food waste, and less than 1% were aluminum and glass containers.
