Ellen Sorenson and Drew Kaiser, UW-Eau Claire alumni, who have been working on a honey bee ordinance for the city of Eau Claire, will speak at the next Trash Talk on April 24 at 7 p.m. in the Towers S. social room. Ellen helped start the bee keeping project at UW-Eau Claire and continues to do research on honey bees. We will also be making homemade chap sticks using bee wax that students can take away from the program.
Give and Take Event
starts May 9
The tents for the annual move out Give and Take Event will go up on May 9. Housing students are welcome to bring items they don't need to the tents and to take away items they do need. Cardboard,broken appliances, futon frames will be recycled for free by Housing. We also will be collecting school supplies for the first time in the lobbies of the residence halls. These items will be donated to students in need at the area schools. Clothing, nonperishable food and unopened toiletries will also be collected and donated.
New recycling bins for Towers
Towers has several new recycling bins that were added as part of a remodeling project on the first floor of the hall. One of the bins will collect ink jet and printer cartridges, CFL light bulbs and batteries. The other two bins are for recycling and trash and replaced older trash bins. If the bins for collecting batteries, printer cartridges and light bulbs get a lot of use then other bins like it might be added to the other halls
Reserve a SEED program
Reserve a SEED program and have a student team come to your wing or hall and present on a variety of sustainability topics. Green Cleaning and The Three R's recycling programs would match nicely with your halls participation in the Residence Hall Recycle Mania Competition. Go to SEED program and learn more now.
