In an effort to become more environmentally healthy and economically conservative, John Brown University instigated a new, multi-step program to become a more sustainable institution. In addition to becoming a zero landfill campus, the university has implemented programs around campus to reduce the volume usable energy and used material.
Since July 2012, John Brown University's main campus has been a zero landfill institution, a transition that is part of an overall sustainability strategy. John Brown University is believed to be the first university in Arkansas and Oklahoma to have a zero landfill campus. Click here to see how JBU reduces the volume of waste and material.
