What Will You Do?

Maintaining a Trash free Campus


You are walking behind College Row and you notice a person who just finished their lunch getting up and leaving their trash on the ground.


  • Direct: "Excuse me! Did you mean to leave that behind?"
  • Distract: "We're not supposed to feed the overweight squirrels! Would you like me to throw that away for you?"
  • Delegate: Walk over, pick up the trash, and throw it away—and have a conversation about it with co-workers who are with you. You can also talk about the experience with others later, emphasizing your desire to keep our environment attractive and sharing responsibility for it.
