Collecting Corks

The corks are recycled and not put in landfills. Did you know that it takes over 1,500 gallons of water to grow the cotton required for just one pair of jeans and each American discards over 65 pounds of clothing per year? Help us by continuing to donate your corks! Drop off is in bldg. 200, room 245.

The Future Cardiovascular Technologist Club and the Association for Radiologic Technologist are collecting can tabs.

Help us by bringing your aluminum can tab donations to room 121, 245 or 133 in bldg. 200. Thank you!
