Single-Stream Recycling Now Campus-Wide in La Jolla
“As of January 1, single-stream recycling is in effect,” announced Mario Osornio, Environmental Services (EVS) quality assurance and training coordinator. This new system, piloted successfully in late 2010, eliminates the sorting function required by previous recycling operations, said Osornio.
Recyclable materials allowed in the blue containers include:
Consolidating recycling efforts offers Scripps Research such benefits as increased recycling rates, improved performance, a user-friendly system, and greater access to recycle containers for faculty, staff, and visitors, according to Osornio. EVS spearheaded the single-stream recycling project with the help of the Green Team and the Student Sustainability Initiative.
Additional blue recycle containers can be ordered through the Scripps Research online order system at http://188.8.131.52/webrequest/. Further information is available through Osornio at x4-2818 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
