The Green Initiatives Committee met on Tuesday, March 5th in the SGA office. All members were present.
The committee met with Larry Lawrence and Tim Decker from the Physical Plant to inform them on the green bags in residence halls. Both agreed that we need to educate students on what items are recyclable. This coming Fall semester, as the freshman move-in, RA’s will be handing out a green bag along with an informational sheet about recycling. We are hoping this will increase the amount of recycling at UCA. Also, Tim Decker’s staff relocated some of the trash cans which were outside of the Student Center. We will also be looking into purchasing recycling containers with holes to fit bottles, paper, and other recyclable materials.
For Green Week we are still contacting business’s for advertising and donations. The t-shirt design/color has also been finalized and we will be ordering them ASAP.
