In FY10, nearly 3.2 million pounds of waste was created on Eastern's campus. Thanks to the voluntary efforts of more than 13,000 students, faculty and staff, however, almost 35 percent of that waste was recycled. Since the its recycling program was established in 1992, EIU has increased recycling from 10.1 percent to 34.6 percent . . . but we can still do better. Below you will find tips on how we can increase our sustainability at EIU via the simple principles of reduce, reuse and recycle.
