Linking the University Mission with Environmental Consciousness
Our campus recycles because our Mission value of Knowledge informs us of the challenges to our Earth produced by a lack of environmental consciousness. This results in all of us using Wisdom by adopting sustainable choices.
Our campus recycles because it demonstrates our commitment to all forms of Justice including environmental justice and because our commitment to Association extends to our Earth.
Our campus recycles because our Fidelity inspires us to show concern for the Earth.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is expected of students and staff?
Lewis University asks that you think before you throw materials into the trash, “Can this be recycled?” A good rule of thumb for paper is, “If you can tear it you can recycle it!”
What is the goal of the Lewis University recycling program?
Our goal is to recycle 25% of all our trash this year. Then to continue to increase the recycling rate each year.
What can we recycle? And what is not recyclable?
We have provided a list on the next page to guide you. That is why it is so important to keep this handout in a safe place for future reference.
