Recycling History

When it all Started

The following notification was issued to campus:

"Starting in August 2, 1993, CSUSM will begin recycling. This recycling program is an aggressive campus-wide activity that will work to recycle a significant portion of our waste material. 
For your convenience, special color coded recycling containers will be located in convenient locations throughout the University. These containers will help you separate; office paper, cardboard, newspaper, glass, cans and plastic.
Please refer to the CSUSM recycling brochure for a detailed list of what is recyclable. If you have any questions or comments please contact Ivalee Clark, at Support Services.
We are asking for your participation in this program so that together we can help save our natural resources, and reduce the amount of material going to the landfill."
