In an attempt to dispel the recurring recycling rumor—“All the recycling ends up in the trash…”—the Sustainability Committee decided to give the campus recycling dumpsters a paint job. There should be no more confusion for students, faculty and staff. The recycling dumpsters around campus have been painted blue to complement the indoor and outdoor commingle program.
Also, the College has worked with Batteries Plus to develop a battery recycling program. Students, faculty and staff can now discard old batteries in specially marked bins located at residence hall lounges, the mailroom and WAC front desk.
