We would like to create a place where items can be reused and recycled. We could collect and sort these items and bring them to their proper locations.

Items

  • Plastic Bags (redistribute for uses)
  • Wood
  • Food waste (would need to clean this out often)
  • E-Waste (there are places on campus but they are not well publicized)
  • ink cartridges
  • Cell phones
  • Batteries (all types)
  • Clothing


Useful Resource: http://earth911.com/ Says that the Colonie landfill takes a lot of these

Reusing Things

  • Make a organizer out of an old phone book. Instructions here
  • See Recycled Notebook for instructions on making notebooks out of old printer sheets and paperboard
  • Materials Reuse storehouse?
    • Many classes require students to buy raw materials to create projects but there is often a lot of waste in this system can we create a "reuse store" somewhere?
