More ways to Reduce Waste

WSU is participating with Kimberly-Clark to take the next step in reducing our waste stream. The RightCycle program by Kimberly-Clark diverts laboratory nitrile gloves and turns them into the raw materials used to create eco-friendly consumer products and durable goods.  We encourage you to drop by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety to try out these recyclable nitile gloves for yourself. More details will be coming soon.  Questions?  Click here to contact Marjorie Markopoulos, our Biological and Chemical Safety Officer.
