One of our efforts towards going green is through recycling. In February 2012, we have implemented a single stream recycling program. We have green bins located throughout campus for your convenience. The following items can be put into these bins for recycling:
- Paper(basically anything that tears)
- Plastics #1 - 7 (except styrofoam)
All items must be free of food waste although rinsing is not required.
As a result of our implementation of our new recycling program, we have reduced the number of dumpsters on campus by 20%. This not only improves the aesthetics of our campus by having less unsightly dumpster sites, butalso greatly reduces the amount of waste that we are sending to the landfill.
Reduce the amount of dumpsters on campus by 20% 2012 Phase I Completed

Educating our university community and Southeast Louisiana on the value of preserving our future through recycling and reuse.
