Annual Reports
State agencies, including universities, community colleges and local schools, have provided their data for the annual recycling and green purchasing report. The 2006-2007 report can be found by clicking here.

The products we use every day not only require resources to produce but also create resources to dispose of. That’s right, resources. Large vehicle fleets operate simply to transport our waste from disposal sites, to a collection center, then to a landfill, sometimes covering large distances.

Landfills are a costly and controversial consumption of land. Much of this waste is recycleable. The solution to the waste problem truly involves each of the three “R’s” - reducing, reusing and recycling.

The environmental and, in many cases, economic benefits of waste reduction make it a truly sustainable exercise.
