Howard University, Recycling


Howard University was recently identified as a school that lacks recycling initiatives and policies. In response, Howard University drafted a plan to become the greenest college in the United States. This study was conducted to identify if there were existing recycling practices on the campus, compare the practices, if applicable, to the local recycling regulations, and present potential obstacles and recommendations to be used by Howard University while designing their recycling program. This study was performed by visiting the campus to identify recycling practices and interviewing campus occupants, and comparing the findings to the local recycling regulations. The key finding of this study is that Howard University does not have a recycling program and does not comply with local recycling regulations.
