Garbology Day to Promote Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Friday, April 25, 2014 - 2:00pm

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Anthropology and Biology Clubs are teaming up to host Garbology Day, May 1, to raise awareness for proper recycling practices, reducing consumption, and re-purposing rather than disposing of material. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to stop by the Nampa Campus Academic Building east lawn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as the clubs seek to raise collective consciousness regarding the current campus recycling program while also promoting sustainable practices and environmental awareness through a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” theme.

Anthropology Club members will be sorting through two days of trash collected from the Academic Building and determining not only what could have been recycled, but also what is being consumed on campus. Informational posters will provide fast facts and helpful hints on how individuals and households can reduce consumer waste and decrease their carbon-footprint.
