Recycling Program

 

On average, 34 tons of aluminum, plastic, glass, newspaper, and office paper are collected each quarter on campus. A "Green Team" of students retrieves the material from over 50 locations and delivers it to a central campus container.  Students, faculty and staff are all part of the "Green Team" when we make an effort to recycle.
