Volunteers sorted through an entire garbage truck of waste to find materials that could be recycled in the Southwest concourse, the area with the lowest recycling rate on campus.

10 volunteers, including Campus Sustainability Manager Ezra Small, Director of the Office of Waste Management John Pepi, ResLife Marketing and Communications Coordinator Lacey Olson and Waste Reduction Coordinator for the Town of Amherst Mimi Kaplan, sorted through the waste in an effort to draw attention toward the importance of recycling and reducing unnecessary waste sent to a landfill.

Missed the Physical Sciences Building ribbon cutting? Interested to see what's inside?

As a research facility, the Physical Sciences Building has a mix of flex laboratories and office space - meaning no traditional classrooms like most buildings on campus. Join us on our Green Buildings Tour led by Capitol Project Manager Ted Mendoza to get a look inside at the wide variety of physics, computational, and synthetic chemistry research spaces!

Interested in the connected West Experiment Station carefully reconstructed brick by brick? See the renovated interior that now houses grad student offices, too! RSVP at https://cli.re/6dpK5J, free and open to the public.
