The AWARE Program (Actively Working to Achieve Resource Efficiency) is an innovative waste minimization program that has been implemented in ten campus buildings. The program aims to make Georgia Tech students, faculty and staff aware of the critical role they play in waste minimization and encourages members of the campus community to make environmentally responsible choices regarding the waste they generate.
In the AWARE buildings, each workstation is equipped with three interconnected waste/recycling receptacles. Custodians do not service these containers. It is each employee's responsibility to empty his or her containers into larger bins located within the building.
