In the news: Student recycling efforts featured on channels 5, 26

Both Local 5 News and NBC 26 checked out UW-Green Bay students hard at work sorting recyclables Wednesday (April 30), running stories about their efforts at the Brown County Resource Recovery facility. The students are sorting through thousands of pounds of recycled material as part of a waste characterization study designed to help them learn more about people’s recycling habits. “Recycling is something that everybody can do to make the world a better place, especially in times of climate change and pollution,” freshman Katlyn Hansen told Local 5. “And I think it’s important to know what you can and cannot recycle, and how to sort through the stuff.” Senior Katie Hobbs told NBC 26 there’s more to recycling than people may think. “It’s not just plastic or glass, there’s a million different little things that it breaks down into,” Hobbs said. “A lot of people are probably throwing out things that could be recycled.” You can catch the stories, here:
