  1. Contact HoC Senior Administrative Assistant in the Head of College Office:

    1. Submit your budget, if applicable.

    2. Complete Yale’s online Green Events Certification and forward your results. We’re proud to be the first college to Green Certify all of our events!

  2. Prepare for cleanup

    1. Let Facilities know if you need recycling and garbage receptacles.

    2. Buy recyclable products, not compostable products, as only the dining staff can handle composting effectively.

    3. When buying products, look for ones marked Green Seal Certified or EPA Design for Environment Approved.

      • Common brands include Seventh Generation, Biokleen, and Mrs. Meyers Clean Day.

    4. When buying paper products, try to use ones with at least 50% post-consumer recycled content.

    5. Post about leftovers in Free Food at Yale or save them in a college fridge.
