Recycling Project and Sale to Benefit Area United Way Agencies

May 25, 2010

Mount Union College’s first-ever Move-Out Day Benefit Sale and Recycling Project will be held May 6-7. This project, sponsored by the Student Senate Purple Raider Empowerment Program (PREP), is being instituted to empower every student, staff and faculty member to address the issue of waste reduction/recycling as well as serve the Alliance community.

From April 24- May 5, recyclables will be collected in all residence halls and then sorted at Wilson Hall in preparation for the benefit sale/recycling project. Faculty and staff are encouraged to drop off recyclables as well.

As students move out of there dorm rooms they throw out mass amounts of food, old appliances and other valuables. This project presents the opportunity to recycle these materials and raise funds to benefit the community.

This sale is open to the public and all proceeds will go to benefit area United Way agencies.
