This week’s Quick Tip!
Combine your trash bin with someone else's!
By sharing a larger trash bin with others in your office area, or taking it out of classrooms to bins in the hallways, you can save plastic liner bags, which are replaced daily, as well as Housekeeping staff labor. This saves money and allows the Housekeepers more time to clean your work and living spaces.
Fisher Goes Green
Start collecting unwanted electronics, cell phones, dead batteries and CFL bulbs for the Sixth Annual Fisher Goes Green Day: Recycling Drive and Sustainability Fair on March 20,2014. There are more details on the Activities page.
Welcome to Fisher Goes Green, THE place to find out more about the environment, and what St. John Fisher College is doing to keep our campus – and our planet – clean, safe, and healthy. This site is maintained by the Recycling and Sustainability Committee.
Monroe County law requires that everyone recycle certain materials, but we are about more than just recycling. We want to make sure that the Fisher Community practices the three R's.
Why Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle? Because we must all practice Sustainability:
Our Committee has sponsored an Earth Day cleanup and planting projects for many years, and we want to spread our work even farther. We participated in the nationwide competition called RecycleMania for two years; we held our first Sustainability Fair in 2009, bringing to campus committed individuals from such varied groups as the Sierra Club, Genesee Land Trust, Monroe County Water Education Collaborative, and GrowMonroe. We also host an annual electronics recycling collection with Regional Computer Recycling & Recovery.
You may contact members of the Recycling and Sustainability Committee via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or comments.
In addition to information about our ongoing Green activities, this site provides informational and educational links to websites to help you learn more about the environment, and what you personally can do to help:
