Since January 2012, CIS has diverted over 16,000 lbs. of paper waste from entering our landfill. All of the paper is collected from the different departments around the university, as well as some outside organizations. The paper then gets weighed and recorded before being recycled or shredded. The shredded paper is used as mulch at either the CIS gardens at house 32 or at the Triton Farm in Yigo.
Make a difference today by diverting your paper waste away from the landfill.
UOG Green interns use shredded paper to border newly planted trees around the university.
CIS volunteer waters the garden at CIS after using shredded paper for mulch.
Mulching in your garden helps prevent weeds from growing, reduce moisture loss, and provides organic material as it breaks down.
