RECYCLING EFFORTS UP 10% IN YEAR AT SLIPPERY ROCK UNIVERSITY

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Faculty, staff and students at Slippery Rock University are recycling – and in a big, big way. Last year, the university recycled 477,257 pounds of material – up 10 percent from the previous year.

          William J. Rudloff, director of environmental health and safety, notes “We appreciate the efforts extended, and we continue to look at ways to improve the recycling program.” He points out the university has added the collection of used batteries (alkaline, nicad, lithium, etc.) and the collection of confidential material for shredding by an outside firm as part of its efforts.

          In further discussing the recycling program, Rudloff noted university offices recycle all types of copy and typing    paper, newspapers, magazines, books, cardboard, ticket stubs, index cards and envelopes.
