Waste // the path of our trash

This is another short film which follows the path of our trash from the Colorado College campus to the Bestway’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF). The film highlights the economic and ecological benefits of closing resource loops, and challenges us to be more conscious about how our ever day decisions impact the amount of land-fill bound waste that is generated. We are left with the question: How can we eliminate the word waste from our vocabulary all together?

Alicia Archibald, an educator with Bestway Recycling company, speaks about waste in the Pikes Peak region. Alicia highlights some local zero-waste initiatives at Fort Carson Military base, as well as the longstanding relationship that Colorado College has had with Bestway working to increase our diversion rate. Alicia describes how a pile of trash has the potential to generate “jobs, money, and resource conservation”.
