New Zero Waste Bins at Trafalgar Campus
Over the college-wide holiday break, roughly 100 new Zero Waste bins were installed around Sheridan’s Trafalgar Campus. These sleek, newly-designed metal bins, which fully comply with fire code regulations, were strategically placed in hallways around campus.
Existing bins were removed from all classrooms and from washrooms that have automated hand dryers. Signs and posters will be placed around campus, reminding students about the locations of the new bins.
Now it’s easier than ever to sort your waste! Learn what waste goes where. And when you recycle, you’ll help protect the environment by diverting waste from landfills.
Together, we can do our part for the environment!
