Waste Management of Arizona and Arizona State University announced their collaborative program "Roadmap to Zero Solid Waste" that aims to eliminate 90 percent or more of ASU's solid waste by 2015.
The program is being developed in three phases including waste assessment, roadmap development and program implementation. It includes all four ASU campuses – Tempe, West, Polytechnic and Downtown Phoenix.
"Harnessing the expertise of the Waste Management team will enable us to properly align our resources within ASU sustainability operations to achieve our zero solid-waste strategies," said Ray Jensen, ASU associate vice president University Business Services and university sustainability operations officer. "We are fortunate to work with Waste Management on a 'Roadmap to Zero Solid Waste' to keep us on track to our 2015 zero solid-waste goal."
