Styrofoam Cooler Recycling Program

By Sustainability Interns | February 12, 2016

Since the Fall Quarter of 2015, the Office of Sustainability has been conducting a Styrofoam cooler recycling program in several UCR research labs. Genomics, Boyce, Webber, and many other buildings receive massive quantities of Styrofoam coolers each week containing sensitive cargo. In order to accommodate both the needs of the lab and the environment, our Green Labs Team developed a system involving weekly pickups of each lab’s Styrofoam coolers in order to reduce the environmental footprint of our campus.

This quarter, we’ve added Keen Hall to our list of Styrofoam-recycling participants, adding up to a total of eight buildings participating in the program. Very exciting! Stay tuned for updates on new additions to the Styrofoam building list to see if your favorite lab is reducing its footprint!
