What does CWC do?

The Cornell Waste Council exists to be a contact/hub for any students interested in getting involved in solid waste operations and management within the Cornell community. CWC facilitates communication between different student and non-student organizations that work toward similar goals, and provide support to student projects, programs, and initiatives related to Cornell solid waste operations and management.

What's New?

- CWC NEWSLETTER: This can give all waste-related organizations the opportunity to have a voice to spread awareness of what they are currently doing to a much larger audience than that of the CWC meetings alone.

- PANEL DISCUSSIONS:This will allow different organizations to come together to speak to an audience of interested individuals on a specific sustainability topic. CWC is currently working on how different organizations on and off campus are working on trying to decrease the amount of water they use to encourage water conservation during the Ithaca drought.

- WASTE GUIDELINES: CWC will be disseminating the basic waste guidelines to help make the Cornell community more aware of their waste segregation practices, while also making them conscious of the responsibility they have toward the environment.

The Cornell Waste Council is essentially a directory of different waste-related organizations and sustainability-driven students, and the team is committed to achieve its goal by trying new initiatives and activities each semester.
