Sustainability

Physical Facilities Strategic Goal

Foster a culture of sustainability by initiating and facilitating innovative projects, educational and informational activities and university-wide collaborations.

*Aligned with Meeting Global Challenges New Synergies goal


PF Sustainability Objectives

  • Physical Facilities will be recognized within the university community and at the national level as a leader in sustainability initiatives.

  • Serving as an initiator of and conduit for sustainability awareness efforts, Physical Facilities will foster the development of necessary behavioral changes that will result in positive environmental impacts.


Program Background

  • Formal recycling program established in early 1990s

  • Funding supplemented by sale of recyclables

  • Need for funding drove collection process

  • Recycling collected and separated by commodity type (source separated)

  • Achieved 26% recycling rate in 2007-08 in traditional personal recyclables


Program Background

2008

  • Recycling rates increased through strategic partnerships

    • e.g. football game recycling (student led)

    • e.g. residence hall roll-off containers

  • Buildings & Grounds contracted with consultant: Resource Recycling Systems, Inc.

    • Evaluate opportunities for expansion

    • Increase efficiencies for program


Program Background

2009

  • Council for Manager Development project focuses on interior collection possibilities

  • Buildings & Grounds developed revised program for expanding recycling

    • Previous recycling history

    • Student project results

    • Recommendations from RRS and CMD

  • Change in Philosophy:

    • “Inside-Out” approach - customer focus rather than operations focus

    • Volume collection rather than revenue

    • Maximize flexibility


Program Goals

  • Maximize Purdue’s recycling rate by most cost-effective and efficient means

  • Reduce amount of waste currently landfilled

  • Raise Purdue’s recycling rate (e.g. 65% by 2014)

  • Accurately capture, record and publicize total campus waste diverted from the landfill


Program Goals

  • Q: How can Purdue convert twice as much personal trash to personal recycling?

  • A: Develop a flexible recycling plan that rewards recycling behaviors (and takes away the convenience of desk-side trash removal)


Process for Change

  • Established Buildings & Grounds Recycling Assessment Team

  • Assigned tasks in four categories

    • Administrative

    • Operational

    • Marketing & Communications

    • Capital Investment


Program Changes for 2009-10

  • Implement Dual-Stream Recycling for interior collection

    • Separate office paper

    • Comingle mixed paper, plastic, aluminum, Styrofoam, and glass (personal recyclables)

    • Note: Cardboard is considered a separate recycling stream and handled at the dock level (exterior collection)

    • No change to Confidential Recycling program


Interior Changes for 2009-10

  • Reward recycling behavior through desk side collection by custodial staff

  • Refuse collection to be completed in central building locations by occupants. We will no longer collect trash at the desk side

  • Reallocate custodial activities to accomplish the program change:

    • Currently trash pickup occurs 3 day/week desk side by custodians

    • Change to recycling pickup

      2 day/week desk side by custodians


Implementation Plan & Timeline

Phase 1: Pilot program in FREH

  • Began July 22nd

  • Evaluate recycling changes

    • Building communications

    • Occupant feedback

    • Compliance data gathering

    • Operational effectiveness

  • Validate assumptions regarding collecting / handling inside the buildings


Freehafer Hall Pilot Results

  • Week 1 = 90.9% Participation

  • Week 2 = 93.6% Participation

  • Week 3 = 96.1% Participation

  • Week 4 = 99.5% Participation

    • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 23%, from 35% to 58%


Implementation Plan & Timeline

Phase 1A: Pilot program in CIVL

  • Began August 26th

  • Implemented Lessons Learned from FREH

    • Clearer, earlier, more thorough communications

    • Staff and Occupant involvement in planning

    • Established simplified list of definitions

  • The Results?

    • 1st Collection = 99.3% Participation


Civil Engineering Pilot Results

  • Week 1 = 99.3% Participation

  • Week 2 = 99.7% Participation

  • Week 3 = 99.3% Participation

  • Week 4 = 99.3% Participation

    • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 18%, from 27% to 45%


Implementation Plan & Timeline

Phase 2: Expanded pilot program to five existing buildings

  • AGAD, PAO, BRNG, LILY and MATH

  • And new buildings coming on-line this fall

    • Discovery Learning Center, Hockmeyer, Niswonger

    • Beginning October 1 through December 31

  • Validate assumptions regarding collecting / handling recycling outside the buildings

    • Effectively interface two parts of program with higher volume of recyclables


  • AGAD Pilot Results

    • Week 1 = 100% Participation

    • Week 2 = 100% Participation

      • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 43%, from 33% to 76%


    PAO Pilot Results

    • Week 1 = 98% Participation

    • Week 2 = 100% Participation

      • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 12%, from 21% to 33%


    BRNG Pilot Results

    • Week 1 = 95% Participation

    • Week 2 = 93% Participation

      • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 17%, from 30% to 47%


    LILY Pilot Results

    • Week 1 = 97% Participation

    • Week 2 = 96% Participation

      • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 13%, from 30% to 43%


    MATH Pilot Results

    • Week 1 = 89% Participation

    • Week 2 = 83% Participation

      • Percentage of recycled materials collected has increased 33%, from 13% to 46%

      • MATH selected because of shared dock with BRNG, not because of being a strong recycler


    Implementation Plan & Timeline

    Phase 3: Expand pilot program to three more existing buildings

    • PFSB, BSG, and GRS

  • Validate assumptions regarding collecting / handling recycling outside the buildings

    • Effectively interface two parts of program

  • Evaluate pilot costs and review implementation timeline


  • Implementation Plan & Timeline

    • Phase 4: Implement balance of the program changes beginning in January 2010

      • Interior implementation (new containers)

      • Groups of 10 buildings at a time

      • Continuous evaluation and improvement


    Exterior Changes for 2009-10
