Recycling Receives Kudos
For the second year in a row, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Georgia State University as one of the top 10 organizations nationally for waste diversion efforts. Georgia State’s Office of Sustainability tracks each campus’s recycling efforts.
Perimeter College campuses recycled 115,510 pounds in 2018. Here is how that total broke down by campus:
- Dunwoody Campus: 54,421 pounds .
- Clarkston Campus: 42,161 pounds
- Decatur Campus:15,862 pounds
- Alpharetta: 3,066 pounds.
Georgia State’s Atlanta Campus recycled 397,319 pounds in 2018.
Newton Campus uses a county recycling program, so no data is available.
Open top dumpsters have recently removed from all campuses to prevent contamination from trash. A residential trash truck, driven by the Georgia State University Sustainability Initiative crew, is used to collect recycling for the university.
Here’s a reminder for Perimeter College employees who handle purchases for the college:
