Dumpster Painting & Waste Audit

Thursday, March 30, 2017 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm
Office of Sustainability
Bell Tower


Join the Office of Sustainability as we beautify our waste stream by painting a dumpster at the Bell Tower. Megan Clement, the winner of the Dumpster Design Competition, will be showing off her beautiful artwork for all to see! Click here to sign up to help paint!


The Office of Sustainability will also be conducting a waste audit simultaneously with the waste that came from the dumpster we are painting. Get ready to get your hands dirty while we sort our trash to see exactly how much of the waste was actually recyclable and compostable. Gloves are provided! Click here to sign up to help sort.
