Western Carolina University closes the semester measuring great success in recycling efforts on campus as being the best yet, claiming first or second in the state in three categories, following the annual collegiate RecycleMania competition.
Enhancing the Cullowhee Creek corridor, providing a solar panel picnic table and researching how to build a compactor that would remove coffee lids from coffee cups and place each in its respective recycling bin are among the proposals approved by Western Carolina University’s Sustainable Energy Initiative for the 2017-18 academic year.
Western Carolina University’s Sustainable Energy Initiative is seeking environmentally friendly proposals from WCU students, faculty and staff to improve the campus’ sustainability while providing educational value for students at the same time.
When Western Carolina University’s Staff Senate and Office of Sustainability and Energy Management held an open forum recently, the students, faculty and staff in attendance made one thing clear: WCU’s success in sustainability is a shared responsibility.
Western Carolina University’s Staff Senate and the Office of Sustainability and Energy Management will hold a campuswide open forum on Wednesday, Feb. 15, in the A.K. Hinds University Center’s theater to discuss the current state of sustainability, energy management and recycling at the university.
