K-State students receive 'A' in recycling
Congratulations students! During fall 2018 move-in, K-Staters recycled 13.83 tons of recyclable material, which comprised of cardboard, paper products, plastic material No. 1-7 and aluminum cans, while only 5.85 tons went to the landfill.
In the five years that the Recycling Center has been exercising this effort, this was by far the best year with a more than 70.27 percent diversion rate for move-in.
With great coordination with students, housing and dining and recycling staff, we all make a difference.
Below is the history of move-in results.
