The Penn State Waste Stream Task Force was convened by David Gray, Senior Vice President for Finance and Business and University Treasurer, in the spring of 2018. The Task Force is cosponsored by Charles Whiteman, Dean of Smeal College of Business, and William Sitzabee, Associate Vice President of the Office of Physical Plant. The Task Force was charged with creating fiscally, environmentally, and socially responsible goals and principles to guide the University’s procurement, operational, and solid waste management decisions while also providing opportunity for academic engagement.

On Tuesday, April 16, 2019, a Community Discussion was held to provide the opportunity to learn about the Waste Stream Task Force, its recommendations, and to ask questions.

Below you will find the Task Force’s report and recommendations.
