Waste Management

Northern Michigan University has been working for more than nine years to develop a comprehensive recycling program for the university community. Some of the many reasons for pursuing these goals include:

  • enabling the university community an opportunity to participate in the conservation of natural resources
  • enabling the university to play a significant role in decreasing the rate at which the Marquette County Landfill reaches its maximum capacity
  • saving significant sums of money that would otherwise be spent for hauling trash to the landfill
