Confused how to compost and recycle?

Want to compost and recycle but worry that you or your colleagues aren't quite getting it right? Invite a Sustainability Office staff member to your next staff meeting to facilitate a waste sorting 101 workshop. Your colleagues will learn where waste goes when it leaves campus, the environmental and social impact of our waste, and how to sort your waste in the different JHU trash, recycling, and compost bins. We'll address your questions and help your team become experts on sorting waste. The workshop can take anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes.

To schedule a staff member at one of your summer staff meetings, contact outreach and communications coordinator Olivia Zug at
