Vision: Our Dreams for BRC 2030

BLAST Ideal: Camps utilize reusable items whenever possible, creating closed-loop resource management systems that contribute zero waste to landfills and support environmentally regenerative activities.

What We're Working On

BLAST Baseline Level: Does your camp separate and track waste, recyclables, and compost?

Mission: How We'll Get There

BLAST Focus: Reducing, reusing, recycling, pre-cycling, upcycling, and composting.

The Waste Team is focused on supporting camps to integrate the hierarchical Reduce, Recover, and Recycle paradigm into their waste streams practices:

1. Reduce: Stop waste from occurring in the first place

2. Recovery: Redistribute “waste” to those who need it most

3. Recycling: Repurpose “waste” in the most regenerative ways
