Electronic and Confidential Paper Recycling Event a Success

On Tuesday, March 28th, the Aramark Sustainability Team hosted an electronic recycling and confidential paper-shredding event outside the three buildings they operate – The Knight Center, Knight Hall, and Bauer Hall – with the help of Washington University’s Environmental Health & Safety Department, and the Office of Sustainability. Nearly 175 contributors dropped off approximately 3,500 pounds of paper and 5,000 pounds of electronic items. The secure vendors that handled the recycling were MRC Recycling and Shred-it.

The event was held from 8:00 A.M – 1:00 P.M. We collected items such as refrigerators, laptops, vacuum cleaners, monitors, TV’s, old tax papers, etc. Contributors enjoyed the convenience of the easy unloading and assistance carrying their items. The event will be scheduled again next year around the same time. Thank you to all that assisted and contributed.
