Check out the recyclables snapshots of the 2016 Fiscal Year.
A 60% increase in recycling tonnage since implementing single stream recycling and "empty-your-own" trash collection system.
Landfill waste is beginning to stabilize. As single stream recycling allows WVU to recycle more items than ever before, we hope to see this chart continue to remain stable.
Over 1,600 tons of material was recycled last year. This includes plastic, paper, aluminum and cardboard from each building as well as miscellaneous items like electronics, lighting, textiles and other sustainability programs and initiatives.
Here is the breakdown of all the specialized items WVU recycled this past fiscal year.
