Now you know
The University has had an active recycling program for 17
years and the 2007 Recycling Report is now complete. Last year UWRF
recycled over 136 tons of paper products and more than 30 tons of
commingled containers. This success is due to the participation of our
entire campus community. Other items recycled range from tires, waste
oil, light bulbs and appliances to food grease and yard materials. To
view the entire report (which includes 16 different items), visit http://www.uwrf.edu/facilities-
Please note that next year containers and paper will be
grouped under a single heading of "Single Stream Recycling". It is
hoped this program, which began fall semester, will help to increase
total collections. Please contact Manny Kenney at ext. 3827 with
suggestions and comments.
