Service Raleigh 2022

Saturday, April 9

Waste Reduction and Recycling at NC State University invites our campus and community to register for Service Raleigh and participate in the following project:


This audit will consist of sorting multiple waste streams from Talley Student Union. You may be thinking, “yuck!”, but honestly, this is a really fun event! The purpose of this activity is to help our office and Campus Enterprises better understand NC State’s waste consumption habits and our potential opportunities to divert waste away from the landfill through reduction, reuse, composting, or recycling strategies.

After sorting all of the waste into a variety of categories provided on-site, volunteers will then join NC State WRR to review the collected data and discuss options for zero waste strategies. Volunteers will also be provided with a light lunch.
