The GC Recycling Program is taking shape, albeit a bit behind schedule due to complications from personnel turnover and logistics. Currently we have 40 blue bins in place, with about 18 of those adopted by volunteer organizations or individuals. Please read more at our web site: http://www.gcsu.edu/green and if you know of someone or an RSO interested in volunteering to help recycle, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Congratulations Georgia College! You have an institutional recycling program! Now let’s get those numbers up! We should have at least one drop of the recycling container each month.
Please be reminded that Terrell 114 is reserved for council work group meetings from 4-5pm on the first Monday of each month. If your work group would like to meet, just show up and use the room!
The Shades of Green website is up and running. Look for a full week of outstanding environmentally-focused activities at Macon and Milledgeville campus!

Over 50 attendees, representing 24 Georgia colleges and agencies, came together to learn more about funding, planing, and implementing sustainability policies and procedures.

Presentations from sustainability leaders around the state demonstrated effective and current techniques and approaches to building sustainability.
