Rochester Institute of Technology will hold its second annual Earth Day waste audit to measure how much recyclable material is being recycled on campus. The audit, from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 22, involves sampling RIT waste from various locations. Facilities Management Services, the Delta Phi Epsilon sorority and environmental science professor Karl Korfmacher’s honors class will conduct the audit near the Tiger statue between the Student Alumni Union and Wallace Library on the academic side of campus.
Last year’s audit found that up to 50 percent of campus garbage could be recycled. RIT’s goal is to recycle 35 percent—and is currently at about 27 percent of that goal.
