Loyola encourages university community to recycle

August 15, 2008

Loyola University of New Orleans continues its commitment to maintaining greener campuses by encouraging and helping the university community recycle on both of its campuses.

The Loyola Recycling Program currently collects and accepts office paper, newspaper, magazines, aluminum and tin cans.

Over the summer, the program placed blue bins at the entrances to all campus buildings, clearly marked for can recycling. Both aluminum and bimetal (tin) cans may be placed in these bins. Loyola Recycling asks the campus community to empty and flatten all cans placed in the bins.

The university also has a clearly-marked newspaper and magazine dumpster located on West Road, on the Freret Street side of the West Road Garage.

The university’s cleaning service, WFF, Inc., has placed 40 office paper collection bins all over campus, which will be emptied by maintenance staff on Thursdays. Students, faculty and staff can also still unload office paper in the green dumpster on the St. Charles side of West Road Garage.

Loyola Recycling has not yet developed an affordable method for recycling plastic, so it is persuading people on campus to purchase drinks in aluminum cans and use refillable bottles in place of disposable plastic bottles.

For a list of acceptable recycling materials and collection locations, go to http://www.loyno.edu/recycling. For general information on the Loyola Recycling Program or to volunteer, email recycle@loyno.edu.

This program is a cooperative effort between LUCAP, the Physical Plant, and WFF Facility Services.
