Weekly Update for Zero Waste

Posted by Marya Ryan on April 15, 2018

Hi Pete and Shawn—

  • Jonathan McClintock from Kimberly-Clark sent glove recycling statistics: 
    • Illinois Sustainable Technology Center 3,000 lbs
    • Chemistry Department 440 lbs 
  • I asked him to confirm whether these are the numbers for 2017 or some other time period. I felt confident that the ISTC numbers are the ones for the trailer at PPSB. If there is any reason to think that’s not the case, I’ll ask him about that, too.
  • I heard from Anna and expect to get her review of the trailer instructions I sent to her and Morgan. 

Morgan, with you on the cc line, I’ll give a heads up that I’ll try to schedule a phone call with you so we can move forward on contacting nonparticipating departments. 

Best regards,
Marya Ryan
