Going green: 2016 recycling move-in results

By Willim Spiegel

Congratulations students!

K-State had its best year with student move-in recycling. The numbers show K-State started this year's recycling efforts extremely well and you should be commended for it. Let's keep this drive alive throughout the entire year with the numerous blue recycling bins available on campus. 

In addition, the recycling staff thanks Housing and Dining Services staff for their effort to make this program happen.
