What’s in your garbage?

Well, we’re going to find out this week.  On Thursday (St. Patrick’s Day), we will be doing a trash audit.  This involves opening up bags of garbage from selected locations across campus and assessing it’s contents.  This event is part of our Recyclemania campaign to raise awareness about waste minimization and encourage higher recycling rates.  We’ll be in front of the campus center from noon to 2 pm.  We expect to take lots of pictures and will report our results within the next couple of weeks.

Also this week, we are selling green grams.  We’ll be in the campus center between 11 am and 2 pm Monday through Thursday.   These are sweet treats with an environmental message.  All proceeds will be donated to the Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center.  They only cost $1 and if you want one delivered to a friend, it’s $2. All deliveries will take place on St. Patrick’s Day.  For more information on either of these, contact the office at gogreen@albany.edu
