We are excited to announce that LSU Campus Sustainability has received an Environmental Leadership Program Award from the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) in the Pollution Prevention category. The award specifically recognizes LSU's first place win in the 2015 GameDay Recycling Challenge, which is a friendly competition for colleges and universities to promote waste reduction at their football games. LSU placed first in the nation in total tons recycled in any one football game, for the LSU vs. Arkansas game.
LSU Campus Sustainability has joined the Department of Energy's Workplace Charging Challenge. The challenge is open to employers of all sizes and industry types in the United States whose charging stations are primarily for employee use. Taking the Challenge offers benefits to employers who are considering installing charging, as well as those who have successfully launched workplace charging programs.
Solar powered trash compactors and recycling bins replaced garbage cans in the Quad and select spots on campus Monday.
LSU led the nation in recycling during the college football season, with 86,400 pounds.
