Middlebury

 

The inspiration for recycling at Middlebury came from students.  In the fall of 1988, Environmental Studies Senior Seminar (ES401), led by Professor Steve Trombulak, developed a comprehensive solid waste plan that was soon implemented by the college under the supervision of Residential Life.  It was later integrated into the daily work of Facilities Services.  In 1994, the Association of Vermont Recyclers named Middlebury College the School Recycler of the Year.
