Live Green, Breathe Purple. It's part of Tarleton's commitment to serving as responsible stewards of the environment. Recycling is a major component of modern day waste management and during new student Move-In Day the university is promoting a campuswide effort to collect cardboard, paper and other recyclable materials.
Campus recycling is a collective effort of Tarleton's students, faculty and staff who are committed to promoting environmental awareness, safety and action. As part of the university's mission to implement a notable campus-wide sustainability initiative, all incoming freshmen and transfer students, as well as those accompanying them on Move-In Day, are asked to participate in these special efforts to yield huge recycling and donation rates.
During Move-In on
* Separate cardboard from other recyclables and trash and make sure all packing material has been removed from the boxes.
* Flatten all cardboard boxes used for packing.
* Place flattened cardboard boxes at the designated recycling locations nearest your residence hall. Signage will be placed near the areas where recyclables will be collected.
* Please place any regular trash in the appropriately labeled dumpsters.
Waste Reduction Tips
* Pack belongings in reusable crates, tubs and bags; save them for move-out.
* Pack conservatively and remove appliances from boxes before arrival (especially fans).
* Choose reusables over disposables (silverware rather than plasticware, towels rather than paper towels, etc). Use a reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water to reduce waste and save money.
"Successful major event weekends such as Tarleton Move-In, Move-Out, Homecoming and athletic events not only represent important steps in our efforts to live green, breathe purple at Tarleton, and of achieving a greater waste diversion rate," said environmental health and safety coordinator
