Recycling Notes


Publication Date: 11/3/2008

At a recent meeting with Tracy Adkisson ’95 of Rhodes’ Physical Plant, Stacey Greenberg ’94 of Memphis Light, Gas and Water took note of the green initiatives on campus and posted her observations on an MLGW blog. 

“Recycling bins have been on campus since I was a sophomore in the early 90s, but the program then was nowhere near as comprehensive as the program now,” writes Greenberg.

“Rhodes has developed a very tight system for their recycling program. There are 104 recycling stations throughout the campus with a total of 300 bins. All of the recycling bins are consistent in appearance and have lids. The Physical Plant has three work study positions for students to help with pick ups and monitoring.”
