Students and staff at the University of South Dakota have demanded a recycling program for years, and finally the university has responded. In 2015, USD hired Verdis Group, a sustainability consulting agency based out of Omaha, to help the campus assess its waste profile and develop a recycling program. Throughout this process, six students from the sustainability capstone course were present to supplement Verdis Group’s work wherever possible and necessary.
