During fall 2021 move-in, K-Staters recycled 7.25 tons of recyclable material comprised of cardboard, paper products, plastic material No. 1-7 and aluminum cans, while only 5.76 tons went to the landfill.
With great coordination with students, Housing and Dining and recycling staff, we all make a difference.
