Case Study Details:   Students with Ashland's recycling program wanted to know just how many recyclables end up in the university's trash. So they rolled up their sleeves for a one-day "waste audit," weeding through bags of trash to uncover cans, papers, and a startling fact: that 70 percent of the school's waste stream was recyclable!
