  • This form will search for any of the words you enter in a field, not the exact phrase you enter. If you would like to search for an exact phrase, put double quotes (") around the phrase. For example, if you search for Bike Path you will get results containing either the word Bike OR the word Path, but if you search for "Bike Path" you will get results containing the exact phrase Bike Path.


  1. RE: recycling bags at ISR

    Associated Project(s): 

    Hello Recycling Team,


    iSEE had a sustainability table at the Housing Resident Advisor fair yesterday, and one concern was brought up about recycling at Illinois Street Residence Hall.  Apparently, a BSW was putting recyclables into the dumpster without blue bags.


    Can you please check into it and let me and Jen (copied) know how to reply to the inquiry she got?





    Hi Jen & Morgan,


    Sakshi and I will be meeting with Mark Kuehl from Housing next week to discuss BSWs’ consistent use of color-coded bags. Mark said this was something they had intended to implement previously, but the pandemic pushed back those plans.


    Thank you,

  2. Green rolloff for recycling arrives!

    It's here, it's here, it's finally here. Waste Transfer Station purchased a new green rolloff container specifically for recycling. We expect to use it for tailgate recycling, welcome week, and any other event that produces an excess of recycling or would benefit from a container dedicated to recyclables.
