Need to ensure proper recycling

Matt Hudson | Tuesday, September 25, 2007

I want to congratulate all of the volunteers that put together the recycling campaign for the Michigan State game. It is great to see that type of activity happening on campus.

That being said, I hope the students ensure that the bags of recyclables are being properly recycled by Notre Dame. In 1999, at the request of students, Notre Dame installed recycling containers in Reckers, but it was only later discovered that the university was actually just disposing of all of the separated trash in the same dumpster, regardless of the fact that the trash had been sorted and labeled according to recycling standards.
