Through educational initiatives and infrastructure improvements made by the Recycling Office, during the past three fiscal years the Institute produced less trash and more recycling. From FY15 to FY16 there was an increase of 120 tons of single stream. That's a lot of plastic, paper, glass and aluminum diverted from landfills and incinerators.
