Loyola recycling reports success with metal pickup

March 13, 2009

In February, Loyola University New Orleans Recycling arranged a one-time pick up of large metal material in an effort to increase environmental awareness and sustainability on campus.

All Scrap Metals of Kenner provided a large debris container Feb. 17, 18 and 19, at the physics loading dock to remove and recycle large metal items. Kathy Anzelmo, coordinator of Loyola Recycling, reports that the effort was a great success with approximately 15,140 pounds of metal accepted during the drive. The metal earned $1,096, which will go toward the purchase of a corrugated cardboard baler for the recycling program.

Items collected included insulated or non-insulated copper wire, car batteries, metal instrumentation, stoves, exercise equipment, metal shelving, appliances, microwave ovens, refrigerators, air conditioners, water heaters, and metal desks and chairs.

For more information about the program, including other acceptable recyclable items, contact Anzelmo at kfanzelm@loyno.edu or call (504) 865-2215.
