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.

Your daily actions speak louder than words.

Brrrr . . . Welcome Back!

Join In this Spring Semester!

We have two competitions coming up this term -- RecycleMania, Campus Conservation National & a host of other upcoming Green events!

It may be called "Spring Term" but so far January 2015 has been anything but Spring-y. Not to worry, there are so many events coming up that you will have so many ways to stay busy that it will really feel Spring before you know it.

Starting February 1st, our annual 8-week competition, RecycleMania 2105 begins. This is your chance to do your Very Best to Always Recycle and encourage (nudge) others to do the same!

Again this Spring term we will be taking part in the Campus Conservation Nationals (CCN) competition. For three weeks, February 23 – March 13, WSU will be monitoring and working hard to reduce use of electricity on campus. You can do your part by turning off lights and electrical devices when not in use and help others to do the same.

This year we will be focusing on educating students as well as faculty and staff about ways to conserve energy and reduce-reuse-recycle resources. Watch for more information and do your part to reduce your Energy and Resource Footprint. We all pitch in and we all can benefit in the long run!
