As part of Sustainable Berkeley Lab’s (SBL) waste minimization initiative, paper towels coming from restrooms on the main site are now going to a local compost facility instead of the landfill. This collaborative effort with Facilities and EHS is an important step toward meeting federally-required targets to divert and reduce landfill waste. We will be monitoring and adjusting the program over the coming months, so feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback. Special thanks to the custodians who make this possible. For more information about SBL initiatives, visit sbl.lbl.gov. To learn how to use fewer paper towels, check out this funny and compelling short video.
