Project Title: Killington Waste
Project Abstract:


     For our project we aimed to succeed in reducing the amount of material waste in the RHM lodge.  Using our research we were able identify three major areas that could be adjusted to produce less waste. Yannick researched commercial composting for his project.  Through his research he determined that the compostable “to go” containers used in the lodge were not truly reusable and replaced them with reusable food containers.

  Tony researched the effects and feasibility of recycling at large scale resorts.  Through his research he redesigned a better recycling program at the lodge.  Working with Cassella he was able to obtain recycling bins in all of the students rooms and throughout the lodge. Emma researched the effect of BPA on humans and the irreversible damage of plastic waste.  She worked with the food and beverage directors at the lodge to get rid of our disposable plastic cups and replaced them with reusable cups for the students.
