Recycling and Landfilled

JMU recycle aluminum cans, and paper products including newspapers, envelopes, paperboard, and corrugated boxes. JMU also compost most of its food waste. Recycling and composting are two sustainability measures used to divert waste from the landfill. The graph shows modest increase in both measures over the last decade. 

JMU Policy 1701 covers sustainable procurement and includes several provisions aimed at preventing waste, ranging from buying products that are reusable, refillable, or contain postconsumer waste to specifying reclaimed materials (such as stone and brick) been used in many specific circumstances.
