Weekly Update for Zero Waste

Posted by Marya Ryan on February 26, 2018

Hi Pete and Shawn—

Here’s what I did this past week for the zero-waste effort: 

  • Continued communications with Roger Adams Lab regarding their interest in glove recycling. Continued correspondence with Serenity Desmond at Noyes about lettng RAL drop off gloves there, since it will be difficult for RAL to get them to PPSB.
  • Received a Purchasing report of glove purchases across the campus. Morgan and I intend to use the information to help promote the glove recycling program.
  • Received a report from UIC on outdoor trash and recycling collection costs before and after implementing Big Bellies on the campus. 

Best regards,
Marya Ryan
