Place all parts of the broken fluorescent bulb, towels and tape in a clear plastic bag. If you have toner, laser, or inkjet cartridges that you cannot send back to be refilled (often an option for many of our large copiers, so check here if Symquest will take them back) you can either drop them off in the copy room in the basement of Skiff, the 2nd floor mailroom at Lakeside, or the Helpdesk office in Rowell Annex. Return to top Many people ask what do to about K-cups. At Champlain College, food waste is collected each day and taken to a large scale composting site, Green Mountain Compost operated by the Chittenden Solid Waste District, for composting.
Food waste is collected in most academic buildings as well as residential halls with kitchens.
Wipe the area clean with a damp paper towel or disposable wet wipe. Send them to be recycled through the Grounds to Grow On program. See this article by Sustainable America for more information...
Sticky tape (such as duct tape) can be used to pick up small pieces and the powder. Learn more information about the recycling program at Staples. Champlain's Information Systems department currently supports the recycling boxes found in Rowell Annex and Lakeside and Admissions supports the boxes in Perry Hall. Composting is a process that takes organic waste, such as food scraps and yard waste, and turns it into a nutrient-rich soil.
At most of our catered events we use plates and cups that can be composted, in addition to any food waste.
The compostable cups will have a #7 on the bottom of the cup.
For this reason, batteries on the Champlain campus should not be put in the regular trash or recycle bins.
Please place batteries in the blue E-Waste Collection tubes found in IDX, MIC, Ireland, Lakeside, or bring to the Champ Support office in Rowell Annex.
Food-grade glass bottles and jars that held food or beverages can be recycled in the same bin along with plastic bottles and metal cans. Put these materials in any recycling bin found throughout all buildings on campus.
Receiving snail mail you don't need, such as credit card offers or catalogs? Batteries are found in numerous electronic devices, cell phones, MP3 players, laptops, computers, watches, cameras, etc.
