Waste Monitoring at Carleton
Going Green: The Challenge
The End of Mother Nature
A documentary about Carleton custodian Randy Peck
Ever wondered where your waste goes once it leaves campus? Carleton MPIRG’s Environmental Taskforce was curious, so they set out on a quest to follow and document the path of Carleton’s waste in May 2011. This 20 minute video shows their visits to the Rice County Landfill, Tennis Sanitation’s recycling center, and the Mulch Store’s municipal composting facility. Through this process, we learn how soon the Rice County Landfill will be filled, how our one-stream recycling gets sorted, and see the differences between a municipal composting facility and the pile of food waste in your backyard. The MPIRG Environmental Taskforce hopes that you enjoy this documentary and are challenged to examine your relationship with waste after watching it!
