Installing Recycling Bins at Clark Kerr Dorm Rooms

Project Leads: Eva Malis, Jordan French

Project Sponsor: Clark Kerr Campus

TGIF Grant: $1,700

Project Theme: Waste Reduction

Application Submission

Project Description: Recycling bins are a basic, essential step to our campus-wide goal of Zero Waste by 2020. The project conducted a survey which showed strong support from residents for the installment of recycling bins in each room. Currently, the few bins around campus are located an inconvenient distance away from the dorm buildings. With bins in the rooms and more readily available to residents, students will be encouraged to dispose of recyclables properly.

Project Goals:

  1. Increase recycling in the residence halls, specifically Clark Kerr.
  2. Purchase small recycling containers for the dormitories and install a recycling bin in each room over winter break, carried out by GETH members and volunteers from Hall Association.
  3. Publicize the project and explain the benefits to all residents in the Clark Kerr newsletter, providing information on how to properly recycle and the benefits of recycling. The project plans to ensure that residents know how to correctly use the bins, and motivate them to do so.
