Retrofit existing Max-R recycling receptacles to separate aluminum cans and plastic bottles. The Max-R products are made of 97% recycled milk jugs in a manufacturing facility powered by 100% renewable energy. This not only upgraded the recycling program but enhanced the visibility of campus sustainability efforts. Setting-up recycling stations promote the reduction in single landfill receptacles across campus and increase waste diversion.
