Sustainability presentation

When it comes to recycling nobody does it better than the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

So much that they have developed a program to address green issues.

The office of Sustainability involves actions such as purchasing local foods, reducing emissions, conserving energy, and minimizing waste.

The most obvious represenation is the large recycling bins that have been installed in the Taku parking lot just off of Farmers Loop Road.

Those bins have already generated an enormous amount of materials that can be recycled.

Tomorrow night the Director for the program Michele Hebert will be giving a presentation at the Schaible Hall on campus at 7pm.

I'll also be letting people in the public know how they can get involved in the sustainability efforts in the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

"Probably the biggest one we have right now is the recycling program. So I will give an update of where those efforts are, and what people can bring to our recycling center.

The University of Alaska site is where most of the people in our community are recycling.

That's where we get the largest poundage.

For example we had about 40,000 pounds of glass alone just last week.

So we're seeing a real effort from the community, they're interested in recycling and

And UAF seems to be the spot they're using the most in our community."
