Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW) Recycling Initiative

Overall Project Goal:
To expand the recycling options in the University of Texas at Austin. It will be the goal of this initiative to first establish a well known electronic waste recycling program inside the University. This program will ultimately be incorporated into the daily waste flows of the University, in hopes to decrease the amount of waste generated by students. It is the ultimate hope of this initiative that all programs created will ultimately be incorporated into the University and can run with autonomy.
Structure of the Initiative:
  • Call every Wednesday the front desk of the eight locations where we have set up the recycling bins.
  • Collect those recyclables and recycle with list of local recyclers.
  • Establish pattern and link producers, consumers, and recyclers together in a long lasting partnership.
  • Start a new program based on recycling needs of the community.
