      • Dorms without elevators still lack recycle bins anywhere on floor
      • No clear incentive for students to recycle on campus!
    • Who is accountable?
      • School administration?
        • Free Press: “The school however did not provide a single recycling bin out on the football field area.” Evan Ticknor.
      • Students?
        • Reduce amount of paper, plastic, glass, and cardboard thrown away every semester.
    • Who is Accountable?
      • Maintenance / Physical Plant
        • School affiliates are always seen throwing recycling into the trash
      • Administrative Assistants
        • One of the leading recyclers on campus they too still have a long way to go to reduce the amount of paper thrown away daily.
    • Recycling Opportunities We need more places on campus to recycle! Recycling in cafeteria? ~ Not an option… thousands of plastic utensils thrown away every week.
