INST 2407 - Garbage and Other Wastes

Hours: 4
We all produce wastes but most of us never really consider what happens to them.  This hybrid format class explores the world of wastes (garbage, human, hazardous, etc.) and the human connection to those wastes.  Students explore environmental processes related to soil and water resources.  Impacts from mismanagement of wastes are then connected to the soil and water resource processes, which are then related to impacts to the environment and humans.  Field trips to local waste management/treatment facilities provide students with direct observations of local waste management operations.
