The Zero Waste Intern is tasked with supporting and furthering AQ's Zero Waste Initiative through advertising, education, and programming. The intern is involved with AQ's zero waste events, including gathering and connecting with volunteers, coordinating the placement of additional bins and signage, assisting in the selection of appropriate products, and other event management tasks. Other responsibilities include updating the zero waste web site and attending meetings with various departments to collaborate on and help guide zero waste initatives. Because the Students Striving for Sustainability Club is activily involved with the Zero Waste Initiative, the intern also acts as a "liason" with club officers to help coordinate activities and assigning tasks. The individual is in charge of marketing and educating the initiative to the campus population, and identifying additional opportunities for education. Special projects may be assigned as identified.
