Mt. Trashmore!

From Chad King, Director of the DU Center for Sustainability: Many thanks to all of you for a successful 2016 Mt Trashmore event.  We weighed over 2500 pounds of trash, and sorted over 740 pounds of the total.  Our diversion rate for the day was 31.1%.  For those that weren’t there, our process was to sort the landfill in buildings of interest to determine the potential diversion rates, and to simply weigh the rest of the materials.

Specific thanks to:

Kaela Martins and her zero waste team, who ran the show with tremendous leadership,

Garrett Blagg and the night custodial crew for transporting the waste smoothly so we were ready to roll in the morning,

The amazing classes of volunteers led by Professors Megan Kelly and Brad Benz,

And the rest of the staff of the Center for Sustainability who helped.
