Dorms Rally For Recycling
Residents of McCarty South acquired matching dorm accessories last night when students lugged recycling boxes back to their rooms.
Members of Students Expressing Environmental Dedication (SEED) kicked off their pilot recycling project, People's Action for Paper Recycling (PAPR), by distributing boxes to dorm residents with the goal of making paper recycling more convenient in dorm rooms.
Blocking both the stairs and elevators leading up to dorm rooms, SEED members were successful in distributing almost all of their 200 boxes as students gladly accepted recycling boxes donated by Weyerheauser.
But some members had trouble giving away boxes to apathetic students who said they were too busy to stop or that they just weren't interested.
