Q: Who will empty the recycling containers in our buildings?
A: Recyclables collected in offices, classrooms, and dorm rooms should be emptied into larger paper recycling bins located in hallways and central office locations. Our custodial staff will take the bags from the hallways to the dumpsters outside.
Q: Will the hauler take recyclables once the wrong item or bag is put in dumpster?
A: NO. We must be accountable to put the proper items in the bins and dumpsters!
Q: How do I know our recycling is being taken to the proper site?
A: As long as we have the proper materials in the bins our haulers have assured us the material is taken to the proper site.
Q: How does recycling benefit Geneva College financially?
A: Geneva receives a financial incentive based on the amount of paper recycled in the Abitibi Paper Retriever bins. While Geneva must pay for hauling of garbage and commingled recyclables, the disposal cost per volume of recyclables is lower than the disposal cost of garbage.
As a College of Distinction, Geneva is nationally recognized for providing outstanding preparation that is highly valued by graduate schools and employers.
