More media: Students’ role in recycling study gets additional airtime

We’ve got more media coverage to share on a Brown County recycling study and UW-Green Bay students’ role therein, this time courtesy of WBAY, Channel 2. Reporter Kristyn Allen spent time this week at the county’s resource recovery facility as UW-Green Bay students and Associate Prof. Christopher Martin sorted through mounds of recyclables as part of the waste characterization research. It’s all part of Martin’s “Hugging Trees: Humanity, Morality & the Planet” Phoenix GPS (Gateways to Phirst-Year Success) class, which incorporates a service project as part of the first-year effort to get and keep students engaged in college. You can check out more about the class and Phoenix GPS online, and check out the news story.
