Trash-In volunteers

Join UW Recycling for the upcoming 2019 Trash-In held on Red Square Friday, April 19, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.  During this time, volunteers (a healthy mix of students, staff, and faculty) can sign up for shifts lasting one hour to sort waste collected from buildings on campus. The idea behind the event is to figure out how much compostable and recyclable material we throw away each day which could be diverted from going into a landfill.  At the end of the shift, volunteers will have a better grasp on what materials are recyclable and compostable and have an eye opening glimpse on the amount of material, especially food, that is wasted daily. 

Go to the sign up sheet to register as a volunteer.
