How 'Green' Is Your Building?
See how your building is doing as far as recycling. The last nine months have been charted to reflect the amounts of paper, cardboard, and plastic/glass/metal recycled by building.
Many things can be recycled on campus, including the following:
> Electronic media, e.g., printer and toner cartridges, tapes, disks, CDs, DVDs, and cell phones can be recycled in the red electronic-media bins located in each department.
> Glass, plastic, and metal can be recycled in green bins. Empty, rinse, and wipe out all food containers.
> Paper and cardboard can be recycled in blue bins. Flatten cardboard boxes and packaging.
> State equipment, e.g., copy machines, fax machines, printers, chairs, desks, and tables, should be reported on a surplus form, available on the Business Services website.
> Hardcover books should be placed in boxes. Call Business Services, ext. 6835, for pickup.
> Softcover books should be placed in blue (paper) bins.
> Fluorescent lightbulbs are collected by custodial staff.
> Mercury-containing items, such as thermostats, thermometers, and medical or scientific instruments: call Environmental Health and Safety, ext. 6128.
