Ongoing Recycling Programs
1.) Move-In, Move-Out Recycling:
In partnership with Home Sweet Home ministries during Spring 2012, the Office of Residential Life collected 1500 pounds of textiles and household items in large bins from students as they moved out of residence halls. The collection, called "Give-N-Go!," was initiated by Leadership McLean County, and brought IWU/ORL and Home Sweet Home Mission together for the initiative. In addition, as a result of residence hall move-in during Fall 2012, ORL collected and recycled 700-800 pounds of cardboard. This program will be offered indefinitely.
2.) Electronics, Battery, and Ink Cartridge Recycling
Information Technology Services began recycling university electronics in 2001 on a trial basis. Soon afterwards, ITS made electronics recycling a permanent fixture. In addition to recycling electronics, ITS will also accept batteries and ink cartridges. Either drop these parts off at residence hall desks or the IT House. This program will be offered indefinitely.
