GSU Extends Recycling to Community

University Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Governors State University is extending an invitation to surrounding communities to join its commitment to recycling and preserving the environment. With the placement of two large collection containers on campus, GSU is asking people to bring their recyclable paper products for deposit.

“GSU already has an extensive recycling program within the university. Some local communities, however, do not have curb side recycling and some of our faculty and staff were looking for a place to recycle paper products from home,” said Peggy Schiesher, Supervisor of Housekeeping. “These large containers provide a great solution.”

The university has contracted with Abitibi Bowater, North America’s largest newspaper manufacturer and newspaper recycler, to pick up and reuse the paper products collected in the bins. Newspaper, magazines, catalogs, mail, office paper, and paperback books are accepted. Cardboard and phone books are not recyclable at this location.

The bins are located in the Wagoner House parking lot, on the south side of Stuekel Road, adjacent to the railroad tracks, and in the E parking lot off University Parkway. Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois.
