Labs in the French Family Science Center and the Biological Sciences Building are recycling #6 EPS (expanded polystyrene or Styrofoam) shipping containers and packaging materials. What began with a few labs has now spread across two buildings. The Department of Biology has contracted with Shimar Recycling to pick up the material and Arts and Sciences Facilities provided the collection bins. Approximately 2 cubic yards per week are being diverted from the waste stream.
Collection bins are currently located in BioSci on the 2nd floor near the elevator, French on the 4th floor on the end closest to Gross Chem and French 3211.
