In-room recycling and education

University Housing is making efforts to promote waste reduction through the expansion of recycling infrastructure. This promotes a culture of sustainability on campus and benefits UGA economically by saving money on waste disposal fees. While also generating revenue for Athens-Clarke County through the sale of recyclable materials – contributing to our regional circular economy. Overall, we believe recycling education is crucial in creating a more sustainable future. Not sure how to use this bin?
