EarthFest 2019

EarthFest was held on Wednesday, April 17th from 11am – 2pm in the Amphitheater located behind Union Station. The Sustainability Committee reserved a table and placed signage (including a brand new table sign that we can use for future events) and had one of our new multisort recycling fixtures placed beside the table. EarthFest was well attended by students, faculty, and staff. The table also promoted VHS recycling in the library on Monday nights along with a live demo of VHS recycling.

242 Pounds of Batteries!!!

You read that right!  From August 2018 to March 2019, CFCC recycled 242 pounds of batteries!  Since we started battery recycling in Fall 2014, CFCC has recycled a grand total of 1,054 pounds.

We have just added two new battery recycling fixtures–one by the Port City Java in Union Station and one in the lobby of the NE building at North Campus.

You can find battery recycling fixtures on the Wilmington Campus: Library, S-building Second Floor Lobby, A-building Second Floor Lobby, Union Station (beside the Port City Java), Wilson Center (beside the doors to the Studio Theater), and on the North Campus: Library, NB building hallway, and the NE building lobby.

So, got some batteries rolling around in a desk drawer?  Drop them off and keep them out of the landfill!
