SSRF Publishes PWAP Report

SSRF has published the results of the Pilot Waste Audit Report. PWAP was the first project in the Waste Not, Want Not initiative. SSRF collaborated on PWAP with two UCSC departments—the Sustainability Office and the Resource Recovery Unit—to test the impact of service, signage, and educational changes on recycling contamination rates. The results of this pilot will be used to influence and ensure the maximum effectiveness of educational consciousness- raising efforts and changes to waste management infrastructure in support of the UC Zero Waste commitment.
