Recycling Tips at Work

  • Bring reusable containers/cups from home to eat and drink from.
  • Avoid using disposable containers such as Styrofoam and paper.
  • Use e-mail and reuse interdepartmental envelopes
  • Use the "Print Preview" option instead of printing your "work in progress" or print drafts on the second side of used paper. Also use both sides to print documents.
  • Utilize KUMC recycling locations. You can even bring items from home.
  • After washing your hands, use 1 to 2 paper towels instead of 3 to 4.
  • If you eat in the cafeteria, use reusable dinnerware.
  • Get the word out...tell your friends and family to recycle!!
