In support of Goal 4, HSU continues to make progress diverting waste from the waste stream.  According to the California State Agency Reporting Center our campus goal is to produce no more than 10.7 pounds of trash disposal per employee per day and no more than 1.9 pounds of trash disposal per student per day.  We have exceeded that goal for many years; weighing in at 4.4 pounds per employee and .68 pounds per student in 2008.  In 2015 we outdid ourselves, weighing in at 1.06 pounds per employee and .27 pounds per student -- a reduction of 76% for employee waste and 60% for student waste.  Kudos go to our students in WRRAP, the Office of Sustainability and each of you in your efforts to divert trash from the waste stream!  Keep up the good work and Choose 2 Reuse!
