As announced in April, the School for New and Continuing Studies will take up residence on second floor of the Law School Annex. To make the space available, the law school moved its student publications back into a renovated space in the law library of Sullivan Hall.
In the process, 15,000 volumes of law reports were discarded. Matilda Schroeter, a junior environmental studies major who works in Facilities, is seen here atop one of the dumpsters of the law reports before they were recycled.
In other recycling news…
Did you know that that the university donates or recycles an average total of 40 tons of material not needed by students during Move Out? The university donates four tons of clothing to Northwest Center, a ton of books go to the Friends of the Seattle Library, seven tons of household goods are given to St. Vincent De Paul, a half ton of nonperishable food is given to Northwest Harvest, and 30 tons of paper and plastic is sent to be sorted and remade into new products. Also, 500 pounds of personal care items such as unopened shampoo and household cleaners that otherwise would go to the landfill are given to
Real Change newspaper vendors. All of the material is collected between the first day of finals and Commencement, only 6 days!
