Compost & Recycling

 

Want to get involved with SU recycling efforts? 

  • This year, SU is competing in RecycleManiaa friendly competition for college and university recycling programs to promote waste reduction activities on their campus communities. From February 4 to April 1, 2017, we will be doing everything we can to promote wasting less and recycling more. 
  • Have an awesome idea to get people more excited about recycling? Or just want to volunteer? Contact gaylerj@seattleu.edu and wallisj1@seattleu.edu for more information.

SU Upcycles 200 Beds 

  • Over the last three years, the Campion residence hall has been upgrading to new, metal, tool-less beds. Instead of the old beds being destined for a landfill, SU decided to donate the 200 bunk beds to the Union Gospel Mission and NW Furniture Bank.
  • Some of the beds found homes locally and were given to families displaced from their homes by a West Seattle apartment fire, while others will be donated to communities in Africa through a separate donation service partnered with the NW Furniture Bank. Learn more.
