Effective waste management is crucial to for organizations to implement sustainability practices. In this paper, we focus on reviewing and improving the sustainability practices (more specifically those in waste management) of Central Michigan University (CMU) Campus Dining, particularly the participation in the RecycleMania Tournament where school across the United State and Canada compete on waste minimization. Using the data collected from CMU and other universities, we look at ways in which improvements can be made to better encourage universities like CMU to improve their waste management plans and implement new practices for diverting wastes from landfills. At the end of the essay, possible challenges and ways of overcoming these challenges are also discussed.
