The Northern Michigan University Recycling Committee has been working for more than nine years to develop a comprehensive recycling program for the university community. Some of the many reasons for pursuing these goals include:
- enabling the university community an opportunity to participate in the conservation of natural resources
- enabling the university to play a significant role in decreasing the rate at which the Marquette County Landfill reaches its maximum capacity
- saving significant sums of money that would otherwise be spent for hauling trash to the landfill

The Housing and Residence Life Department, in coordination with student groups, has launched a new composting pilot in the residential dorms on campus to help reduce waste. Started by student demand and research, this project is a brand new initiative at NMU and is looking to expand in the future.
