The Education Department made a donation to the Marvin Harvey Scholarship with funds raised through the Think Recycle initiative. The Department has been providing a drop off for printer cartridges, cell phones and small electronics such as digital cameras and MP3 players.
The recycling initiative has resulted in hundreds of items being safely and responsibly diverted from the waste stream. Also, Tree Canada plants a tree for every 24 qualifying items recycled through the program. "It's a valuable program for everyone involved," says Patrick Howard, coordinator of the Departmental initiative." We are making a real difference with a sustainability initiative on campus and supporting CBU students at the same time."
Anyone wanting more information about the program, or who has qualifying items to donate, is encouraged to contact Dr. Howard.
