Getting the new program on its feet

For Physical Plant, there is more to enhancing the recycling program than just modeling it after the municipal service. An education iniative that is currenlty underway includes the revision, production and installation of new signage for each and every blue bin on campus.

Darren Jones, Physical Plant Sheet Metal Mechanic, has fabricated dozens of brackets to frame some of the larger recycling decals for the wheeled blue bin. From his shop the signs will be collected and hung on bins around campus by Recycling Driver, Keith Arnold.

The mid-sized blue bins (generally found in hallways) will feature updated decals, as well. Caretaking Services and the grounds summer students will be applying those over the next few weeks.

By the end of the summer, most of the nearly 1000 bins on campus will feature the new program information.
