|All of us would do well to remind ourselves that the 3 R’s of waste management are “Reduce – Reuse – Recycle” – in that order. At Campus Recycling, we work hard to ensure that reuse opportunities are fully explored before recycling (and after waste reduction).
|Several reuse exchanges have proven very successful at the U of O. These include facilities for the exchange of office supplies, furniture, and other kinds of surplus equipment and materials. Not only does participation in these exchanges have a positive impact on the University’s waste stream – it saves money by allowing promoting the reuse of items which would otherwise have to be purchased. Campus Recycling tracks the replacement costs for items taken from these exchanges as a demonstration of the effectiveness of this kind of waste reduction and cost avoidance.|
