RecycleMania and Landfill on the Lawn

Each day across campus hundreds of people mindlessly throw recyclable materials into the trash.  To see how many recyclables are being put into the landfill, stop by Landfill on the Lawn on Thursday beginning at 11:00a.m. outside Stone Building along College Ave.   A group of students will be sorting through two dumpsters that have been dumped on the grounds.  Recyclable materials will be removed and taken to the proper container, preventing it from going into the landfill where it would spend thousands of years breaking down.

Be sure to place your recyclable materials in the proper containers so they can find their way into new products when they leave campus, instead of polluting our environment.  By doing so you will also help support UNCG’s efforts in RecycleMania.
