Sustainability Moving Forward in the Wright State University Dorms
The Wright State University dorms and the Office of Sustainability, in keeping with the goals of the university to make our campus greener, will be implementing programs targeting energy and resource conservation and waste reduction. We will be targeting reduced electricity and water use, as well as increased recycling.
Dan Bertsos, director of Residence Services, and his staff are working with RAs to help dorm residents learn ways to save energy, like turning off lights and unplugging electronics when not in use. Developing sustainable thinking and behaviors go hand-in-hand with becoming a responsible community member both on campus and beyond.
Look for upcoming contests and events in the dorms and on campus to increase sustainability throughout the year.
Be sure to check this website for shuttle schedules and bike rack locations to assist you to get around campus and the local area without using your car. Less gas and more pedal power!
through March 29
Recyclemania is an 8-week competition that begins February 2 and ends March 29. Wright State will compete against other universities across the country, last year we finished 105 out of 260. Let’s work to better that number this year.
WSU is competing for the 7th year in the national college campus recycling competition, RecycleMania. Wright State University will be competing against hundreds of other schools from across the country in several recycling categories.
Not sure what you can recycle on campus? Cardboard, all kinds of paper, cans, plastic bottles, so many things can be recycled! Learn what can go in our co-mingled recycling containers (PDF). And look around for our new ones (many of the old cardboard ones are being recycled, naturally).
