The project is expected to be complete in the winter of 2014 and involves three major components: renovation of the campus Power House on 18th Street; construction of a separate, new heating and cooling plant; and installation of new utility distribution systems.

No-sort recycling in CU housing and dining helps make landfill diversion easy

August 28, 2012

 

Recycling bins located throughout Housing and Dining Services at the University of Colorado Boulder are now single-stream receptacles, helping to make landfill diversion as simple as can be.

The new system, implemented this week in residence halls, dining facilities and at the Center for Community, allows all recyclables to be tossed into one container, alleviating the task of sorting materials.

Recycling throughout the rest of the campus will remain a dual-stream system with “paper” and “co-mingled container” categories.
