Sorting your waste at UW is now a little clearer with 3-D visuals showing ideal disposal. The new visuals, located in the HUB and By George Café, aim to simplify waste disposal on campus and encourage greater composting and recycling. UW Sustainability led the project in partnership with the UW Garbology Project, UW Housing and Food Services, and UW Recycling.
Alaska Airlines Arena, Husky Stadium to promote green initiatives at sporting events
The University of Washington Athletic Department's sustainability program has chosen GreenDrop Recycling Stations to help implement their strategic sustainability plans for waste diversion at Alaska Airlines Arena and the newly renovated Husky Stadium.
Husky Stadium is going green for this Saturday’s huge match-up against Oregon, and we’re not talking about the Ducks’ uniforms.
The University of Washington is getting national attention and recognition for its recycling and sustainable efforts at Husky Stadium. The National Resources Defense Council, anational non-profit environmental group, recently featured the stadium's recycling program in a report and called the university a “game changer” on college campuses.
Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability is pleased to announce the launch of the new UW Sustainability Map—a web-based application showing the locations of over 25 types of sustainability resources.
n 2011, the University of Washington–Seattle was exploring alternative waste and recycling platforms for their campus, with Emily Newcomer, the University’s Recycling Program Manager, leading the initiative. Newcomer was seeking a solution that was easy to service, created less litter, saved staff time, and helped divert recycling and compostables. These criteria led them to BigBelly Solar.
So it took a little longer than expected, but the results of the Denny Project are in and the final report has now been submitted to UW Recycling. It is also now available online here.
