In 2016, Waste Services conducted a Sustainability Scholars research project to determine what types and amounts of food waste were being thrown away, and what household habits may increase or decrease the amount of avoidable food waste (or wasted food).
Food Waste Research Project
In Fall 2018, Waste Services will be participating in a new, exciting food waste research project. More details coming in September this year.
This research is being used to help Waste Services develop a food waste prevention program, which will include educational info and resources to help residents reduce the amount of food they throw away.
