Recycling at Fanshawe
Journey to Zero Waste
Our goal is to divert 65% of Fanshawe's waste from landfill by encouraging students, staff, and faculty to recycle and compost on campus. Please help us reach our goal by learning how to separate your waste and recycle at Fanshawe!
Last year, our waste audit revealed that 69% of the waste that went to landfill could have been composted and 20% could have been recycled. Organics and paper waste need special attention this year, as they are the most waste items generated on campus. We all have a responsibility to recycle and compost in an effort to support the culture of sustainability here at Fanshawe College.
