Recycle your bags during Recyclemania, starting Monday
Do you have plastic bags overflowing in your pantry? Work at Eco U and feel a little guilty about tossing plastic from time to time? Instead, bring your bags to work. In support of RecyleMania efforts, UW-Green Bay is piloting a program with Zeus Recycling to collect and recycle clean, dry, flexible plastic from home and campus, beginning March 3. That includes bread bags, dry cleaning bags, tissue wrap and more. Stop by the RecycleMania booth from 11:30 a.m.–2 p.m. in the Union (March 3–4) or by the Garden Café (March 5-7) to check out the baler and see how big (or small) a 40 pound bale of compressed plastic film can be.
