Outdoor Recycling Expands to the Walkway

Posted on April 15

Outdoor recycling is being improved in the T. Anne Cleary Walkway.  This project is part of the UI's effort to divert 60% of its waste from the landfills by 2020.

Partnership:  Thanks to a joint effort between UISG, ARH, Landscape Services, and the Office of Sustainability--and your demand to recycle more--you will see blue recycling bins added to the T. Anne Cleary Walkway between Chemistry Building, Pomerantz Center, and Blank Honors Center.  

Sort-free:  These are sort-free recycling bins, just like others on campus.  Paper, plastic, metal, and cardboard are allowed.  Not allowed are plastic bags, glass, Styrofoam, food, and wrappers.

Success: Critical to the success of these bins and the future of outdoor recycling at the UI is your responsible use of them; since this is a pilot project, it's outcome will help determine future outdoor recycling plans on campus. 

We need you!  Educate yourself, educate your peers, and please recycle responsibly!  A waste audit open to everyone will be held in the area on the walkway on April 30th from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. to assess the success of the pilot.  We hope to see you there!
