Power of a Single Action
Sustainability is open territory — there is much to be accomplished and plenty of room for innovation. Pioneers are needed at all levels who can make important contributions and have a profound impact on our future. We invite you to become an active participant and to expand your awareness of sustainability on campus and throughout the communities in which you live, work, and play. After all, it’s the power of a single action that brings about change.
Recycle To Fundraise!

Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel which can contaminate our environment if improperly disposed. By recycling batteries, we can help to prevent toxins from leaching into the air and waterways. From lithium to lead, many battery components can be recovered and reused.
To ensure your college-generated, single-use and rechargeable batteries are properly recycled and disposed, email firstname.lastname@example.org for collection. They may also be delivered to Office B163.
