We are excited to announce the new recycling bins provided by grant from the Nebraska Recycling Council funded by the Nebraska Environmental Trust have come in and are in place at Village Pointe.
The bins must stay in the location they are placed in. We worked with colleagues in the space to determine where bins were needed and then found a location that meets code. If there is an issue with a bin location and you want to relocate it, please email LiveGreen@unmc.edu so I can verify the new location is acceptable.
If you see your Environmental Services workers, please thank them! This is a big change for them and they now have more containers/more work to do. They have willingly taken this on and are happy to help recycle! Also know that recycling bins aren’t emptied until they are ¾ full. This helps with efficiency but also decreases the number of plastic bags we have to use, an unfortunate side effect of recycling.
Thank you for your help in bringing recycling to Village Pointe and for your patience while we got the bins and service added there! We know other locations are recycling on their own and would like to see this change too. We are working on it and thank you for all your recycling efforts and patience.
