You can make a difference...

Welcome 2012!

As you return to campus this for the start of Fall Semester 2012, be sure you look around for what’s new on campus. Did you see the 50 new Recycling (and waste) Containers on campus? We are hoping you will seek them out and use them, each and everyday. Backstory: During 2011-12, Student Government did a Litter Survey on campus and they were not pleased with the amount of trash laying around on the ground and in parking lots. They garnered support from the Provost and gathered a group of campus leaders to secure more containers. It happened!

Look around as you come on to campus and as you walk from class to class, find the waste/recycle containers and Reach Right to Recycle! Some of the previous containers have been repurposed so also look for the green Recycle labels and Reach Right to Recycle!

Just about everything (except food contaminated cheesy, greasy, that “yucked up” stuff) can be recycled—paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, cans, metals—it can all go into Recycle. Better to recycle so we save those mounds of trash and costs of sending waste to landfill space. Why not recycle, eh?

So remember, Reach Right to Recycle! We are a Green Campus, in so many ways.

Get involved, let us know what other Green Initiatives you’d like to see on campus.

What can be recycled—you’d be surprised!

Do you McMRF? Montgomery County Municipal Recycling Facility is jammed full of great stuff. You never know what treasures you’ll find there—gallons of brand new paint, best sellers, reams of paper, huge rolls of butcher block paper, cabinets, sinks, 2 X 4’s, much of it unused or nearly new. They host special days for teachers. The WSU Arts Department has sent students there for years to find gems to work with for projects.

So many Sustainability changes on campus!

As of August 31st, Mr. Hunt Brown retired as the Director for the Office of Sustainability. We will miss Hunt's dedication to sustainability but in the spirit of sustainability here at WSU, we will continue to Green our campus.


Welcome Back to Campus!

As you arrive or return to campus this for the start of Fall Semester 2014, be sure you look around campus.

Look around as you come on to campus and as you walk from class to class. In addition to even more recycle containers around campus, we now have 2 Zip Cars.

And two new charging stations for EV's (electric vehicles) in 2 locations.
