Commencement is zero waste event

Emory is composting food, service ware and recycling bottles and cans throughout its 166th Commencement celebrations. To provide a "Destination Zero Waste" Commencement, Emory Recycles and the Office of Sustainability Initiatives are partnering with many campus organizations to reduce the amount of waste ending up in local landfills.

Events included in Destination Zero Waste are the Commencement Brunch, the President's Open House, graduation ceremonies organized at four schools, three reception rituals and other festivities around campus.

Unsure of where to deposit litter? Look for one of the Emory Recycles volunteers wearing the green "Destination Zero Waste" buttons to ensure proper disposal methods.
