TOWSON, Md. (Feb. 14, 2008)—Towson University will implement a pilot recycling program in Tower B residence hall with a target start date of Feb. 18. Can/bottle and paper recycling containers will be placed on each floor of Tower B which houses more than 400 students.
The results of the pilot program will influence how the university moves forward with residence hall recycling. ARAMARK Recycling staff will monitor and compare levels of recycled materials in Tower B with the other Towers to determine whether or not collection of recycling on each floor is the most effective method for maximizing resident student participation in the program. Currently, recyclables are collected at central locations within each resident hall.
Towson University has had a successful recycling program since 1990. This pilot program is part of the University’s 2010 initiative and is aimed at improving participation in the program. With the addition of the 40 recycling containers, the university will have more than 400 recycling locations campus-wide.
