For Immediate Release
WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University’s residence move-in recycling program will return to Laurier’s Waterloo campus and will be launched on the university’s Brantford campus for the first time this year. The program helps students recycle their cardboard and packing products during residence move-in days Sept. 4 and 5.
As part of the program, recycling bins will be added to university residence buildings. Student volunteers from the Ecohawks help to sort recycling materials on Laurier’s Waterloo campus.
“By partnering with the Ecohawks student group, volunteers will be on hand to guide students and parents through the proper sorting of recycling materials and help break down oversized cardboard,” said Tyler Plante, coordinator: outreach and programs in Laurier’s Sustainability Office.
Residence buildings Clara Conrad Hall, Macdonald House, Bouckaert Hall, Leupold Residence, Waterloo College Hall and King Street Residence on the Waterloo campus will have recycling bins available for the week.
On the Brantford campus, bins will be located at the Expositor Place residence and at the Students’ Union parking lot.
This program runs in combination with Laurier’s Student Move-Out Waste Program, which helps reduce curbside waste in the spring.
