    Waste Management

    • Recycling of glass, aluminum, bi-metal containers, paper, cardboard, and electronic devices is encouraged and enforced.
    • Our food service vendor uses 100% biodegradable disposable service ware and certain serving containers; instituted “tray less” service in one of the cafeterias, saving 3 cups of water for every tray, or 260 gallons of water per week; and purchases all of their bread, dairy (including ice cream), and produce from local vendors.
    • High efficiency hand dryers have been installed in several locations on campus to promote better hygiene and to decrease our waste stream of paper towels.
    • 100% recycled paper products are used in all restrooms.
