Recycling is an important part of Dartmouth's sustainability initiative. In June 2010, Dartmouth launched a Waste Centralization program aimed at increasing the recycling and trash diversion rates. The program will also help decrease the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions associated with the manufacture, transport, and disposal of waste materials. This new process supports Dartmouth's progress toward meeting its greenhouse gas reduction goals. In the fall of 2008, Dartmouth announced a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent by the year 2030, starting with a pledge to a 20 percent reduction by 2015.
