Re: “Trashed

To me, this story provides an obvious argument for producer responsibility. Off-campus food providers should be paying a fee for every disposable they sell, and those funds should cover disposal, education, collection, and diversion costs. Sustainability provisions should be written into every contract with food providers on campus so that take-aways are in recyclable packaging only and discounts are given for students bringing their own travel cups and to-go ware. None of this would be easy to implement, but somebody's got to take the lead. Reduce waste in the first place, and establish an effective diversion effort in the second place. Mixing both trash and recycling and then "sorting" it again is ridiculously ineffective and misleading.
