Installing Recycling Bins at Clark Kerr Dorm Rooms
Project Sponsor: Clark Kerr Campus
TGIF Grant: $1,700
Project Theme: Waste Reduction
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.
- Increase recycling in the residence halls, specifically Clark Kerr.
- 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.
- 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.
