UW-Stout is the Biggest Reducer

Our 2014 waste data is in and we've got great news! Since implementing campus-wide composting in 2012, we've been significantly reducing our trash and increasing our compost and recycling.  The icing on the cake: our overall waste has been reduced by 360,952 lbs from 2011 to 2014.  Keep on reducing, reusing, and recycling/composting, UW-Stout!
