Green Tip

Recycle & Save on Energy!

Recycling is an excellent way to save energy and preserve the environment. One recycled tin can would save enough energy to power a TV for three hours. One recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes while one recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for three hours. Seventy percent less energy is required to recycle paper as compared to making it from raw materials.

University of Memphis Lambuth Recycling

U of M Recycle Crew

The U of M Sustainability Program was busy in the Spring 2013 getting Lambuth set up with their own recycling program after being approach by some very eager and passionate Lambuth students. Within one month our recycle team took several trips to Lambuth and set up a full scale recycle program. The Lambuth sustainability leaders were quick to initiate the new recycle program with a Recycle Kick-Off. We continue to work with the Lambuth campus in all their recycling needs as they continue to grow and be an example for the Jackson community.
