Sustainability Champion of the Month
Associate Director, Property Management Office
Stan has been a long-time champion of reuse at Stanford. In the Property Management Office, he assisted in absorbing the Surplus Sales department, which enabled a much more simplified and efficient disposal process for the campus community. Taking a more active role in support of the biannual Campus Clean-Up events, his team now collects and recycles 30-50 tons of electronic waste per event. Stan also implemented the furniture reutilization program, diverting over 300 tons from landfill over the past five years, and saving university departments millions of dollars in unnecessary purchases. The recent lab sharing events have saved the university $150,000 in research funding over the past year, and led to the transfer of significant leftover lab supplies to the startup of a new Chemistry department in a local high school.
