Residence hall communities collect 1.3 tons of recycled materials each week

Posted on Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Expanding in-room recyling efforts to residence halls across campus has been a big success at the University of Northern Iowa. More than 1.3 tons for recyled materials are collected by City Carton each week, according to a report released the final week of September.  This includes recycling from residence hall communities and dining centers.

UNI distirbuted 2,800 recycling containers to dorm rooms and ROTH apartments.  A room in each residence hall and ROTH has been designated as the collection center for sorting recycled plastic, tin, glass, cardboard and mixed paper. On-campus residents are responsible for getting recycled materials to the hall collection center.
