A student driven recycling program at Cal State University, Chico. Developed with an "idea" in the mid 90s, this program has grown to a successful full-time recycling program on campus with nearly 2,000 recycling bins, 20 student employees and nearly 60 interns.
While many start off, merely looking for a part time job, nearly all come away with a much greater understanding and appreciation for a more sustainable campus and a commitment towards a "greener" future.
The ultimate goal for the AS Recycling Program at Chico State is reaching "zero waste" by the year 2015!
