Recycling and Resource Conservation


To better serve our students and to accommodate travel for SVSU students, STARS will be expanding the Ricker Express bus line. This change will be effective starting Monday, October 12. Please note that the hours of operation have been changed. The last departure from the transfer plaza will be 6:40pm rather than 7:20pm and route hours will be extended to 11:00pm. Rates will remain the same through the Fall semester. To better reflect its expanded service area, this route is being renamed as the ‘Regional Education Line’.  The new schedule can be found here.


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!

The collection of returnable beverage containers in public areas offers an opportunity for student clubs and organizations and faculty and staff to fundraise and/or donate to charitable organizations. Submit your Request forms (PDF) to the Sustainability Office and start fundraising today!


Packing Materials  

Think precycling! The simplest and most direct way you, as a consumer, can help protect the environment is to turn a trained eye to what you purchase. Consider reducing product consumption--if you don't need it, don't buy it.  Packaging accounts for approximately 1/3 of a product's disposal--consider little or no packaging, avoid disposable items, or choose products in recyclable or reusable containers. Purchase in bulk or economy sizes versus individually wrapped or single serving sizes. Select durable and repairable products and products that can be recharged, reused, or refilled.  To reuse campus packing materials:

• Return bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and boxes to Shipping & Receiving (P108)

• Packing materials are available for reuse by employees for college business or personal package shipping.
