Grant Amount: $3000
In 2009, the PCL Green Team started collecting aluminum and plastics in high-traffic areas of the library. Once the PCL Green Team received funding from the Green Fee, they were able to install 60 new blue recycling bins around the library, each with a sign that educates students on what materials can be recycled versus what needs to be thrown away. The PCL Green Team monitors the recycling bins, noting that they collected over 600 bags of recyclable materials during the first semester of this initiative.
