We gave the new students entering the Fall 2017 a presentation. The presentation was to help students understand the concepts of how Central Community College includes sustainability into the college experience while on campus.
The students were shown where the recycling is located, and the types of recycling is used on campus. Students have single stream recycling available to them in the classroom and in the dorms. We also offer Trex plastic film containers for film that cannot go to single stream.
We presented how students can engage in sustainability related activities while at Central Community College: internships, S4S, zero waste events, Nebraska state fair projects and annual highway cleanups.
