Did you know…
- Clarkson spent over $250,000 in fiscal year 2012 for solid waste management –
- A lot of this is food waste and disposable food containers
- At the same time, we spent $126,000 purchasing these disposable containers.
- And it takes an estimated 430 hours of labor by Clarkson staff to move our waste to dumpsters.
Let’s work to solve this Problem!
