Project Details

COCC (Central Oregon Community College) used the Community Innovation Fund in 2020 to design and install signage across campusto reduce recycling contamination and increase diversion of recyclables from the landfill. They were able to set-up a pilot of new recycling stations in key areas of campus, which they were then able to roll out to other areas of campus.
