Have you noticed our new recycling bins in buildings throughout campus? The Office of Sustainability has rolled out over 100 bins between Marietta and Kennesaw campuses to step up our recycling efforts at the University.
Our old bins collected all of our recycling in one place, which meant that if one recycling stream was contaminated, they all were. This made it difficult to recycle the materials efficiently, and often times they ended up in the landfill.
But our new bins are designed to help sort our recycling into separate streams, keeping it cleaner and easier to recycle. This means that it can be used more efficiently in producing new materials and products.
While the new bins make it easier to recycle, they still depend on you to make sure we divert as much waste as possible from the landfill. If you're not sure if something is recyclable or where it goes, don't worry! Our new Clean River bins have labels to help you out.
