Step 1. Ignore the “recycling numbers” often found on the bottom of a product. Those numbers are meant for employees of a MRF (Materials Recycling Facility).
Step 2. Follow the “Put Waste in its Place” guide.
Through diverse waste diversion and sustainability initiatives we are able to reduce the local and global impact of WFU on the environment. The recycling and waste reduction initiatives that we have on campus allow us to conserve energy and resources and decrease landfill waste.
WFU uses a multi-stream recycling system, which means that cardboard, bottles/cans, and paper are all sorted separately. We use the “Put Waste in its Place” guide to help the WFU community sort their waste correctly. Some of our other waste diversion and recycling programs include; E-waste, Surplus, Deacs Donate, Compost, and Textile recycling.
