Solid waste isn't a stream that starts in one place and ends in another. It's a loop of valuable resources. Penn State is committed to "closing the loop" on its solid waste through a program we call möbius. It's waste management—with a twist. In 1858, German mathematician August Möbius gave a strip of paper a half twist and joined the ends to create an elegant loop. The Möbius loop, as his discovery has come to be known, has no beginning and no end. Penn Staters are helping make our waste loop as small as possible by reducing and reusing what we use, and we're recycling and composting nearly everything else. Every building. Everywhere. Everyone.
