Recycling efforts off to great start after move-in
The K-State recycling team thanks all the students who moved into the residence hall over the past two weeks and made this university a more sustainable environment.
As shown in the chart below, K-Staters recycled 11.83 tons, or 22,460 pounds, of recyclable material and only sent 1.81 tons, or 3,620 pounds, of non-recyclable material to the landfill. This was K-State's best diversion rate since at least 2014 and it is impressive.
It's a great way to start the year and let's keep this great passion to recycle throughout the year.
