Brookhaven College is committed to sustainable practices that promote
learning, as well as social, environmental and economic vitality. As
part of the college’s ongoing efforts to reduce its environmental
footprint, the following guidelines have been developed for all who use
Brookhaven College facilities - students, employees and community
From plates, cups and serving trays, to leftover food, catered events
tend to create a lot of waste. Plan thoughtfully in order to follow
the guidelines and fully participate in the college’s efforts to reduce
waste and conserve energy.
Think about other ways to reduce waste at your event. Use paper
nametags instead of plastic. Print on both sides of paper, or better,
eliminate hand-outs by using the whiteboard or computer projector. Ask
participants to carpool.
