Earlier today, Ashley and I participated in the campus litter pickup for recyclemania. It is the last event for recyclemania and I think we can say that Southwest hall has participated in all of their events. It was great exercise going out for a little bit and walking around and picking up trash. Trash pickup isnt something that has to be done at an event. I encourage you all to go out sometime this semester and get some fresh air while making your campus cleaner! 🙂
Thank you to anyone who came to Cake Walk. We raised about $260 for the American Family Children Hospital in Madison, Wi. This was a very successful event and i hope you got a sweet treat!
I decided to make tetris door decs for our wing. Everyone gets their own piece on the door dec. I hope you all enjoy them and finish out the week strong before spring break!
Tonight, Southwest Hall hosted a waste audit at 6pm. A group of us got the chance to go through some garbage and recycling to see how much we waste. We found that 25% of the recycling sample was actually garbage and roughly 16% of the garbage was able to be recycled. We were told that our hall had much better numbers that other buildings on campus. keep on recycling to help our planet.
Today I made sure to drop off my E-Waste at the drive being held in the pioneer restore today. E-Waste could be anything like printers, laptops, televisions, and other electronic devices. If you have any of these things and are looking to get rid of them safely, then I recommend taking them to the Pioneer Restore and saying that you come from Southwest Hall.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we will be collecting trash and recycling for the next few weeks. On Tuesdays we will pick up recycling and Thursdays will be trash. All we ask is for a small donation of spare change or whatever you are willing to donate. This money will go to support us in Relay For Life and help the American Cancer Society. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
For recyclemania, we are collecting paper! There are tubs in every elevator bay to collect them in. We will only be accepting paper for this drive and it ends on sunday night. So please collect all of your extra paper and bring it to the bins 🙂
