Earth Friendly Move-In

Posted by on Monday, August 13, 2018 in Events, News, Waste & Recycling.

Whether you’re a first-year or returning Commodore, we are excited to have you back on campus soon! While moving in to your room or your office, please try to minimize waste and recycle.

The VU Cardboard Crew will assist first-year students at the Commons with recycling their cardboard, Styrofoam, and plastic film wrapping. SustainVU will also host a booth at the University Resources & Service Fair in the Commons Center from 5:30pm-7:30pm, so please come and say hi!

For areas outside the Commons, please use the existing recycling containers nearest you and either place boxes in cardboard recycling containers or flatten and place between recycling container and a wall.

We Recycle on Campus (Map):

  • Plastic & Aluminum: All clean plastic containers, beverage and food cans, and aluminum foil. NO PLASTIC BAGS, please!
  • Mixed Paper: Phone books, magazines, fliers, newspapers, paper board, cereal boxes, junk mail, old papers.
  • Cardboard: Remove all packaging and flatten.
  • Glass: All glass bottles and jars. Glass recycling is located at the Commons Center, Crawford House, Lewis House, Carmichael Towers East & West, McTyeire, Warren & Moore College Halls.

Consider posting our Sustainability Move-In flyer in your area, available here.
