Sustainable NSCC Students: Green Sleeves

This is a guide for students at NSCC interested in making the campus more sustainable and in pursuing an environmental career.

Zero waste

Here’s what goes in the compost bin:

  • All food—fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, bones, cheese, grains
  • Coffee grounds & filters
  • Tea bags (no staples)
  • Non-waxy paper plates & cups
  • Pizza boxes
  • Paper napkins

Everything else is either recyclable or goes in the landfill. When in doubt, throw it in the landfill/trash bin as it takes time and money to sort through items that don’t belong in the compost or recycle bin.
