Welcome to all things recycling and sustainability at Park University. You can now recycle the following at the Parkville campus at collection centers located across campus:
Hey -- What about CARDBOARD? if you have cardboard to recycle, DO NOT leave it at the recycling center. You must collapse your cardboard and take it to the cardboard dumpster located behind the cafeteria.
Throughout the years, many different campaigns have taken place to improve green efforts and to recycle. These efforts attest to the concern of the Park community for its surrounding communities. In order to continue efforts to lessen environmental impacts, the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) Solid Waste Management District (SWMD) and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources awarded a grant in 2009 for Park's Parkville and downtown campus centers to begin campus-wide recycling.
On this page, you will find information regarding the MARC SWMD, the grant, and recycling efforts being put in place on campus. Additionally, this will be a resource serving to consolidate the different green efforts that are taking place on campus. If you have any questions, please email the grant director, Angela Markley Peterson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions about recycling at the downtown campus, please contact the downtown recycling coordinator, Kecia Harrison, at (816) 559-5616 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
The university has established procedures for recycling on the Parkville and downtown campuses based on the recycling grant. You can also view the amount of waste that has been recycled by the university.
Terms of Park's MARC grant
The Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) Solid Waste Management District awarded a grant to Park University to begin a recycling program at its Parkville and downtown Kansas City campus centers. Grant dates were January 2009-March 2010. The grant provided money for recycling and any start-up costs involved. The idea is to provide sustainable alternatives to the landfill, not items that will need to be purchased to continue recycling in the future.
