Suffolk Launches Green Team Move-In Initiative

8/31/2010

This fall for the first time, as students move into Suffolk's residence halls there will be Green Team volunteers on hand to help with recycling.  The student volunteers will rotate through the floors of 10 West and the new expansion, 150 Tremont, and Miller Hall on Sunday September 5 and Monday September 6 to let people know where to drop off their recyclables.  Each floor has a recycling drop-off location. 

The goal is to divert as many recyclables from the trash as possible.  Signage will indicate where to leave cardboard boxes, one of the most common types of recyclables generated during move-in.  Student volunteers will promote recycling by distributing brochures about the campus recycling program and distributing "You've Been Spotted Recycling" coupons, which provide a discount at campus cafes. 

If you would like to sign up to volunteer for the Green Team, email your 9/5 and 9/6 availability and cell phone number to recycle@suffolk.edu by Wednesday September 1.
