Recycling Cell Phones
This week, students assembled green and yellow corrugated plastic bins to be placed around campus, possibly at the end of summer, that are to enable people to recycle bottles, cans and cell phones. The effort was an activity for Earth Day, which is today.Matt Bereza, assistant professor of psychology and Green Committee's incoming chairman, said the effort is student-driven, and students are hungry for "green" activityon campus."They did (the assembly) all in two hours, so they were really excited," he said.
Erin Dean, associate professor of counseling and psychology and chairwoman of Green Committee, said the committee started five years ago and began because of American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment committee. It was a national effort to get universities to become more "green," she said. President Paul Marion signed on to the effort for TU.
