hidden georgia tech - campus recycling

By Victor Rogers NOVEMBER 21, 2019

Across the Georgia Tech campus, hidden spaces and forgotten places await rediscovery. Some are relics of an earlier time, difficult to find and explore. Others are very much in view but often overlooked. Hidden Georgia Tech is a photo essay series highlighting places on campus that are hidden in plain sight.

Campus Recycling

Georgia Tech’s Office of Solid Waste Management and Recycling encourages and supports the Tech community in decreasing the amount of waste produced on campus and the amount of waste that the Institute contributes to landfills. The Office provides recycling services inside campus buildings, for fraternity and sorority houses, and at several outdoor locations across campus, and coordinates recycling for special events, office moves, the annual Earth Day Festival, student move-in and move-out, and home football games. Since 2008 Tech’s Game Day Recycling program has made it easy for fans to recycle, whether they are tailgating, walking on campus, or watching the game inside Bobby Dodd Stadium. In 2018, the Game Day program alone diverted nearly 17 tons of material from landfills.

Let’s take a closer look at campus recycling.
