Last night's meeting featured Amanda Mancuso from Brazos Valley Recycling. She discussed BVR's relationship with Texas A&M and some details about how recycling and composting processes operate. Really interesting stuff!
We then worked with our subcommittees to develop our specialized projects such as our flower bed near Evans Library, speaking at FLO's about EIC, contacting possible Earth Day donors, placing "Can you recycle that?" stickers on trash cans around campus, creating a graphical map of all of the on campus recycling bins, and furthering our Green Fund proposals.
There are a lot of exciting events this week including:
- The Underground bin monitoring shifts are still going on
Thursday and Friday this week. Sign up here
if you have any available free time to help out!
- Our committee retreat this Saturday from 3pm to 7pm at The Tradition behind Northgate (301 Church Ave.) It is required so let me know if you cannot attend or have any questions!
- Curbside recycling is this Sunday from 2pm to 4pm outside Schuhmacher Hall across from the Northside Post Office.
- Our second intramural soccer game is this Sunday as well at around 3pm. If you're at all interested in participating email me back and I'll send you the details. If not, you can always help out at curbside recycling!
If you'd like to give your input about recycling on campus, Kelly Wellman, Sustainability Officer at Texas A&M, will be having recycling committee meetings every couple weeks or so starting on Friday, February 25th at around 11am. I'll send more information closer to that date but if you'd like to give your two cents about how recycling should be handled then I encourage y'all to participate in these meetings.
