Quick Win: New Suggestion for Facilities Implemented Promptly


A recent suggestion submitted to the OE2C website has resulted in an almost immediate response. While walking the Boulevard at a recent home football game, Associate Provost Julie Forrester noticed there were no lids on the recycling bins, making it difficult to tell which bins were for recycling and which were for trash.  

Without the telltale lid with a hole cut out for recycling bottles, cans and cups, the bins wound up with considerable trash mixed in with recyclable materials. Her simple suggestion: Place lids with holes on the recycling containers to make them more readily identifiable and place the recycling bin and the trash bin next to one another.  Her idea was shared with Facility Services, and they were able to implement it by the next home game. 

Although time will tell if there is an improvement in the amount of articles recycled, it’s a great first step!
