Culver-Stockton College's new recycling program

Posted:
CANTON, Ill. (WGEM) -

A new recycling program is making it easier for everyone at Culver-Stockton College to "go green."

All student living spaces and college offices are now equipped with the single-sort recycling bins. Before, recycling bins were only located in the common areas of student residences.

The student worker that collects the recycling from all student rooms three times a week says he thinks recycling can build character. 

"When I go in there I see a lot of the sororities and fraternities actually trying to do what they are and actually making sure they're separating what they're suppose to. I think it just shows responsibility," said Kevin Henderson Jr.

The Dean of Student Life says everyone like the idea, but they had some wrinkles to iron out.

"What can we recycle, what can we not. You know, it's just those little logistics that we have to figure out. So that kind of can take a little bit of time. But we were ready to go. We started the first week of school so we've been going now for two weeks," said Dr. Chris Gill.

Dr. Chris Gill says he believes now a days students expect this from their college. He also says, Quincy Recycle is working closely with them to ensure the success of the program.
