Shout out to the Sustainability Program at USD and the great work they are doing with their recycling program! Their Spring 2021 newsletter highlighted what they’ve been up to and the success they’ve seen with their program:
It’s student-run: Four undergrads of various majors and a graduate coordinator manage collection. It’s single-stream: Unlike the City of Vermillion’s recycling program, the campus program sends mixed recyclables to Millennium Recycling in Sioux Falls. It’s expanding: 31 out of 40 buildings have access to recycling. It’s vulnerable to contamination: We need to keep plastic bags, liquid and other contaminants out.
