RecycleMania 2018 Event Photos
It was a rainy day, but that did not stop students from donning raincoats and gloves to sort through a mountain of plastic bags.
Students then emptied the bags to begin sorting them.
A quick glance inside the bags revealed a mix of trash, compost and recycling.
Students then created the "wall of shame" of items that should not be in the compost.
Luckily our volunteers took action and began to sort through the bags.
Out of the 323 pounds of trash collected that day, 247 pounds of recyclables and compostables were able to be diverted from the landfill.
Community Recycles Day
Facilities Services hosted the annual Community Recycles Day on March 21st.
Community members could recycle items such as styrofoam, electronics, printer cartridges, clothing, paint, large containers, and scrap wood or metal.
3R Technology also helped to sponsor the event.
Many community members stopped by to drop off their old computers and printers.
One volunteer helps to separate light bulbs.
