Over the holiday season, garbage cans in offices and workstations across campus were replaced by much smaller trash containers in a move to reduce the amount of non-garbage going to the landfill.
Facilities Management would like to remind faculty and staff how to care for these new containers:
- Use it sparingly; recycle as much as possible.
- Empty it regularly into the larger bagged garbage in a common area nearby.
- Keep it clean.
The bins are used for garbage-only items such as used tissues and napkins, broken glass, foil wrappers of food items, carbon paper and lip balm or gloss sticks.
The containers are not to be used for liquids, batteries, wood or other construction materials, light bulbs, recyclable materials, Styrofoam or hazardous materials.
