Plastics are approximately 17% of Capilano U's waste currently being sent to a landfill.
Clean, hard and soft plastics are collected from within our Food Services and other North Vancouver campus area/departments and picked up by Smithrite for recycling on a weekly basis. This program will be expanded for the Fall 2012 Semester.
There is centralized collection between the Birch and Arbutus Bldgs - campus community members are encouraged to drop their CLEAN hard and soft plastics into the designated bins or email Shipping & Receiving for pick up.
If you have any questions contact Shipping & Receiving or email Sustainability.
Remember... as with all recycling programs putting the correct item into the correct bin makes a HUGE difference to the success of the program. So.... if in doubt... keep it out!
