exhibit to the student body. A lot of the
items displayed contained fast food bags,
cups, food, and PIZZA BOXES! Many of
the bins collected from residential areas
on campus such as Green, Beam, and the
villages are generally filled with these
items. However, other buildings on campus
do a good job of keeping non-recyclable
items out of the bins.
Collecting recycling bins from residence
areas has been a hassle for BC recycling
students to manage this semester A lot of
the time, bins are overflowing with trash
and bags of trash are laying next to them.
No one is responsible for the removal of
student’s trash, so it should be disposed
of properly in the dumpster Do not lay it
Above: A bunch of trash which has been
put into the recyciing bins. Students who
voiunteer their time to maiing our campus
better sort this trash from the items which
can be recycied
Right: A member of BC Greens arranges
the trash so students can see what sort of
unrecyciabie items have been put in the
next to the bins.
Joe Lovenshimer, who is a member of
BC Greens and recychng, hopes that by
exhibiting trash from recycling bins that the
student body will become more conscious
of what they put in the recycling containers.
He said “We put on this project in the hopes
of letting people realize that there are actual
students cleaning up garbage that is thrown
in the bins due to laziness and apathy. The
problem is exclusively residential areas.
The faculty doesn’t have a problem so why
should the students?
With the participation of students on
campus, the recycling program can become
easier to manage and BC can become a
more enviroimientally friendly college.
