How Recycling Works


What about us

What about us?

  • RHA Recycling started to urge University-wide recycling

  • Evolved into a service provider-

    • Waste Management

    • ORWM-No MURF

  • Special Programs


The problem

The Problem:

RESIDENTS CAN NOT RECYLE PLASTIC, GLASS OR TIN

  • Private contractor

  • East Lansing

  • Pass the responsibility

  • Student Education/Outreach

  • MURF plant


Volunteer

Volunteer

Interested students are assisted by RHA in setting up in hall recycling programs for the volunteers to maintain

  • PROS:

  • Immediate gratification

  • Recycling provided in hall

  • Low budget

  • CONS:

  • High maintenance

  • Volunteer dependant

  • Not consistent through campus

  • Not sustainable from year to year

  • Transportation


Private contractor

Private Contractor

RHA hires a recycling company to pick up waste from halls. Bins maintenance is still RHA responsibility.

  • PROS:

  • Transportation

  • In Hall Recycling

  • CONS:

  • Expensive

  • Not all halls are picked up

  • Acceptance standards!

  • Remember Waste managment


East lansing

East Lansing

City of East Lansing puts a drop off site on campus. Basically 3 dumpsters for recyclable materials.

  • PROS:

  • Low maintenance

  • Simple and effective

  • CONS:

  • Expensive

  • Not necessarily available

  • Physical Location

  • University Approval

  • Not in hall


Pass the responsibility

Pass the Responsibility

Try to pass on the responsibility to some other group.

  • PROS:

  • If it works, it won’t be our problem

  • CONS:

  • No reason to believe it will work

  • Newman’s idea

  • Could make us look bad

  • Sour relationships

  • Lose input

  • DOESN’T RESULT IN RECYLING


Student education

Student Education

RHA focuses less on recycling. Push conservation through education in reduction and reuse.

  • PROS:

  • We are well suited to this

  • Similar results to recycling

  • CONS:

  • We still aren’t recycling


Murf plant

MURF PLANT

RHA assists in obtaining a MURF plant. There are three obstacles:money, physical space, university politics.

  • PROS:

  • Recycling becomes very simple

  • More materials are recycled

  • Deal with ORWM

  • CONS:

  • Over 1 million dollars

  • Where to put it?

  • Politics

  • No guarantee it will work
