At a semester program called HMI, I helped organize and recycle the recyclable waste. Every week, the blue bins around campus would overflow. A few students and I volunteered to help empty the recycling. Before leaving for a recycling plant, we would have to organize all the different types of recyclables. As an example, we would have to organize all the number one plastics together and put them in their own trash bag. We would organize before we left, to minimize the time spent at the plant. The drive to the plant was about fifteen minutes. At the plant, we would follow the signs telling us where to dump the different types of recyclables. We would then drive on back to school.
