    Hello. My name is Meagan Heath. I am the Waste Management Supervisor in the Grounds, Fleet, and Waste Management unit. Today I will be introducing you to the Universitys waste management program.

This presentation will focus on the waste management aspect of our services.*Did you know that York University is responsible for managing all the waste it produces? As large institution, we do not receive waste management services from the municipality, like you probably do at home. We have to take care of it ourselves, which is why our programs are somewhat different from what you may have seen elsewhere.

    In managing our waste, York follows the 3Rs hierarchy. We try to avoid creating waste by prioritizing reduction and reuse, and when waste cant be avoided we try to divert as much as possible through recycling and composting.

    York has long been engaged in a variety of waste diversion activities. In the early-1980s, York was collecting a variety of materials, including paper, scrap metal, corrugated cardboard, and motor oil for recycling, and in th
