Kevin Marquardt, a Dowling Catholic graduate and Clive resident, used an independent study to determine how Iowa State could improve their recycling.
By researching other universities’ recycling programs, conducting surveys and interviews and studying students’ recycling and waste practices, Marquardt was able to create a successful paper detailing potential initiatives for the campus.
One of the main conclusions determined by Marquardt is that campus recycling will improve if the recycling bins have a standard appearance, and are placed in similar locations around every building.
