Although my fellow blogger posted that DU does not recycle, my reporting has proven that posting to be false. I spoke with Samella Hargor, supervisor for the physical plant, Thursday afternoon hoping she could confirm or set straight the recycling issue. And she did just that.
Hargro said that Dominican DOES RECYCLE!! "The bags are color coded. All waste goes in white bags and all recyclables go in black bags." While maintenance may pick up all bags when making their rounds, Hargro said that recyclables and waste are separated for each designated dumpster.
Hargro said Dominican has always recycled. Although in previous years, paper recyclables were further separated from plastic, glass or aluminum, for the past several years, all recyclable materials are separated from the trash.
Here you see a physical plant worker making his rounds with both recyclables and waste. While they're in the same cart for the time being, he told me they'll be separated into each designated dumpster.
This is reassuring as some of my fellow bloggers and I were upset by the post stating that all waste gathers in one dumpster.
Whew!! I love the idea of going green and love that Dominican IS GOING GREEN!
At Dominican, RECYCLABLES=BLACK BAGS. WASTE=WHITE BAGS.
