Bottle Recycling on Campus

The can and bottle recycling on campus was started by Students' Union in 1988.

In 2005, the U of L purchased hundreds of bright blue recycling bins with the words "Recycle and Support Student Scholarships" on the side. These bins can be found throughout campus and they gather over 200,000 empties and recycle them into Scholarship dollars. In this year and in future years, this will mean many thousands of dollars provided back to students.

This Recycling Program is a partnership between the Students' Union, the U of L and Quest Support Services. Quest provides active living activities to help developmentally challanged clients maintain useful employment in the community. Quest is key to the successful operation of this recycling/scholarship program.
