Baseline Waste Stream Characterization Study

Illinois Sustainable Technology Center

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report


Since 2010, the University has taken several major steps toward achieving zero waste. In 2013, the University engaged the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center to conduct a campus-wide waste characterization study to better understand priorities and opportunities for waste reduction. The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC), a unit of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois, created a methodology for waste stream characterization and evaluation that provides building-level performance measures and achievable recommendations for improvement. The 2014 Campus Waste Characterization involved facility-level waste characterizations for four buildings throughout the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.Open
