Whether the goal is energy savings, saving money on paper products, or keeping the campus clean and litter-free, wise use of resources is a priority at FHSU.
PolicyThe recycling goal at FHSU is to reduce solid, hazardous, and animal waste quantities as much as possible. Programs of re-using, recycling and surplusing not only reduce landfill needs but have many practical and environmental benefits. These programs support our "Clean and Green" campus philosophy and represent the right thing to do. Reduction and re-use play an important role in any successful recycling program that is designed for campus-wide ownership, is easy to participate in, and is intended to be perpetual.
