While UM has been making great strides towards its ambitious 2025 Campus Sustainability Goals through its Planet Blue program, waste reduction has been difficult to achieve. UM is piloting a composting project that, if successful, will divert up to 1/3 of typical landfill waste to the Ann Arbor Compost Center. The Zero Waste Game Days program now employs compostable containers which, at 88.17 percent, is closing in on the goal of diverting 100 percent of Big House game-day waste to composting and recycling facilities. Progress toward the campus-wide goal of reducing waste to 40 percent of 2006 levels is on the horizon. Let’s Go (Planet) Blue!
