The goal of the Recycling Program is to reduce the solid waste stream by 25%.
Efforts to date have resulted in a reduction of approximately 18%. Recycling
stations, scattered across campus, and the addition of a Recycling Intern to coordinate
the Waste-Wise Education Program have resulted in increasing collections of recyclables.
The Campus Recycling Oversight Committee, which makes program and budget recommendations
to the Facilities Services Director, has also placed a strong emphasis on the value
of reusing equipment and furniture.They have also recently worked together with
the Dining Services to install two composting “Earth Tubs” located behind the Lommasson
Funds to operate the recycling program on campus are generated from the sale of
recycled material, donations from University Staff, a $4.00/semester student fee
(negative check off) and vending machine revenue.
