Commitment to Emory Law Sustainability -Waste Disposal
We, the undersigned, students, faculty, staff, and otherwise members of the Emory Law School community, support a comprehensive and more effective program for waste disposal on the law school campus. Such a program may contain expanded recycling facilities and composting of both food products and paper towels in the bathrooms. We expect these steps to divert much of our building waste from landfills into sustainable or renewable means of disposal.
The University is committed to an overall goal of reducing Emory's total waste stream by 65% by 2015, including recycling 100% of electronics waste and road construction materials, and composting, recycling, or reusing at least 95% of food waste, animal bedding, and building construction materials. Other campuses at Emory University, including the Candler School of Theology and the Rollins School of Public Health, provide a strong model for the law school to do our part.
We respectfully ask the Emory Law administration for their support toward this endeavor, as we anticipate needing procedural, programmatic, and monetary support.
