TVs, Refrigerators, Futons, Computers…What do they all have in common?
Your first guess might be: “Well…there all things I brought with me to college.”
However, it might be, and you definitely said this first if you read the title – “They all come in a box.”
That’s right. They ALL do come in a box.
When you think about it, almost everything comes in a box.
And with the average student spending over $900 on their dorm room, there is sure to be no shortage of empty boxes during move-in week.
To capture this additional cardboard, LIU Post places a cart in the lobby of each residence hall during move-in week. These carts, marked specifically for cardboard only, are monitored and picked up as needed by the Department of Facilities Services.
In total, 75 carts of cardboard were removed during the 2013 Move-In week, which resulted in the recycling of almost 5,000 pounds of cardboard.
To continue recycling cardboard throughout the year, please place your boxes either in or next to the recycling bins marked for “Paper and Cardboard.”
