Over Four TONS Recycled!

During the fall 2011 move-in process, students who lived in on-campus housing were encouraged to recycle the cardboard boxes that they used to transport their prized possessions to their Cyclone home.

Special recycling dumpsters were set up in and around move-in locations for cardboard and other recyclable items.

According to Rick Parrish, District Operations Manager for Waste Management (WM) of Ames, this year, WM hauled 62 loads and recycled 4.65 tons of cardboard.
