Following the successful pilot initiative by The Office of Sustainability involving the removal of individual garbage bins across all Humber and U of GH offices, the WEL (Student Welcome and Resource Centre) building has been chosen as the starting location for this initiative at the Lakeshore Campus.
Starting March 8, 2022, individual staff and students will be responsible for emptying their recycling and throwing their garbage away at these stations, and custodial staff will only remove waste from the new centralized sorting stations. Centralized sorting stations are known to reduce waste production, which is why there will be four-stream sorting bins with a compost option, with signage on how to properly sort waste. The goal is to roll it out campus wide in a systematic approach over the coming months, a change that will help us reach our goal of 15% waste reduction by 2024.
For any questions or concerns, you can get in touch with the Office of Sustainability at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To further reduce waste on campus, Humber has also switched to a reusable container program.
