Education and Engagement

Waste ambassadors

Waste Ambassador Program 

In the 2022-2023 school year, the Sustainability Office piloted the Waste Ambassador Program at UTM. Through waste education and outreach, the student-run program communicated knowledge and waste management to other students, staff, and faculty. The goal of the program is to change behaviours on waste sorting and improve waste education on campus to help us increase UTM's waste diversion rate.
