UofL is competing against schools across the country to see which campus can reduce waste and recycle the most throughout February and March. You can help the Cards to victory by: 1. Avoiding disposable items as much as possible; and 2. Making sure you always recycle. It’s amazingly easy at UofL. All types of plastic, paper, cardboard, metal and glass go into the same single-stream recycling bins all over campus. Don’t worry about how “clean” your item is, just recycle it.
