Approximately 135 undergraduate students participated in a waste characterization study at the University of North Florida (UNF) on March 8, 2007 that was titled Garbage on the Green. The purpose of the study was to identify and quantify the types and sources of materials in UNF’s solid waste stream. Findings from the study were used to generate new strategies for improving campus waste management and recycling programs. The study was funded by the Environmental Center and supported by the university administration, the city of Jacksonville, and a diverse group of regional public and private organizations.
