Public Trash Sort

As a way to educate our community regarding how many recyclables are thrown away in our trashcans outside, the sustainability office and the recycling department will be conducting a public trash sort of the trash that accumulated in our outside trashcans.

Students, staff and faculty are invited to come by and help out, or just come by and observe the results.

This event is being conducted in support of the University’s participation in the Recyclemania competition, which is an 8-week tournament that helps colleges and universities promote waste reduction activities.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this public trash sort, please contact Tyler Sytsma at 704-687-0606 or by email at
