Recycling Receptacles in Old Town

Recipient:

Department of Fraternity and Sorority Life

Amount:

$3,415

This project seeks to enhance recycling behavior for University of Maryland students by installing recycling receptacles at five locations: Knox Road, Yale Avenue, Princeton Avenue, College Avenue, and around Old Town. Recycling receptacles at these locations will establish a much needed recycling infrastructure for over 5,000 students who walk these highly populated intersections of Old Town. Surrounding these intersections in Old Town are 12 sorority chapter houses and around 30 fraternity chapter and satellite houses that generate heavy traffic up and down the areas of focus. These recycling bins will redirect waste and cut down on litter produced by the area’s residents and the greater UMD student population that traverses this area.
