Welcome back, Auraria Campus!

February is Waste and Food Waste Month
We have a lot of awesome events and opportunities this month!
Check out our calendar to stay in the loop:
Waste Bin Sticker Application is live!
With the help of student and community volunteers, the ASCP has been adhering updated versions of Landfill, Recycle, and Compost stickers to the waste bins here on campus. The stickers are more accurate than the previous ones.

Upcoming dates TBD
Tri-Institutional Sustainability Workshops
Join us for our Spring Workshop series to learn more about a variety of sustainability topics! This series is designed to introduce students to general sustainability concepts or expand knowledge on specific sustainability pillars. Workshops are free to all Auraria students.

*CU Denver students can earn a co-curricular leadership certification!

Faculty/Staff Coalition Update
Our first faculty/staff sustainability coalition meeting of the semester will be held this Thursday 2/6 from 10:00 AM-11:30 AM at the CU Denver Wellness Center. We will be discussing this semester’s events and projects and taking a tour of the LEED Gold certified building.

Learn more about the coalition and sign up to join the conversation by visiting our web page.

If you take your recyclable items out to the recycling bin in a trash bag, remember to take the items out of the trash bag before you toss!

Putting plastic bags in the recycling bin contaminates the waste and often sends it all to the landfill instead of a recycling facility.

Do you know a student, faculty member, campus employee, or organization here on the Auraria Campus that epitomizes Sustainable behavior?
We'd love to feature them!
