Welcome to Trash Talk, a new Public Interest Project Group under OPIRG McMaster. We focus on reducing waste generation on campus through education around proper recycling practices, promoting composting, and raising awareness about the importance of mindful consumption. Our goal is to help increase McMaster University’s waste diversion rate. The group’s primary tasks for the year are:
- redesigning waste receptacle labels to make sorting waste on campus easy and convenient
- providing reusable items as an alternative to single-use products frequently used on campus
If you’d like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or check out our blog below to find out what we’re up to.
