It pains me every time I see someone at a printer notice they've made a mistake or printed too many pages and toss a stack of sheets in the trash. There should be paper recycling next to every single printer on campus, and preferably next to all trash bins, so students and staff can be green without having to go looking for recycling options.
There should also be glass/plastic etc. recycling bins in and near every location that sells drinks in plastic and glass bottles.
Deakin claims to want to be an environmentally responsible campus, but that's somewhat difficult to believe since making recycling facilities readily available is pretty low-hanging fruit from a sustainability standpoint.
Please show your commitment to the environment by making it possible for your staff and students to recycle--and in fact encourage them to do so!
