You might have seen in one of our earlier posts that the Weinberg Memorial Library recently started a Green Team. We’ve wasted no time getting started on making the Library a more sustainable place to study and work.
This month, the Library purchased new WedgeCycle recycling bins to encourage our patrons to separate their recyclable paper, bottles, and cans from other non-recyclable waste. We’re hoping that the bright colors (blue for bottles & cans, green for office paper, brown for trash) and clear labeling will remind everyone to think before they toss.
You’ll find our new recycling bins on each floor of the Library. We’ve put them in what we think are the most convenient locations for students – so if you see someone about to throw away a plastic bottle or a stack of office paper, please remind them to look for the recycling station instead of the trash can!
