CFCC Sustainability Night
A nice summary of our first CFCC Sustainability Night! https://www.goseadevils.com/sports/wbkb/2021-22/releases/20220203erheej
CFCC Adopt-a-Highway Roadside Cleanup
Cape Fear Community College will participate in the N.C. Department of Transportation Adopt-a-Highway roadside cleanup program. CFCC will be responsible for MLK Parkway, from 23rd to 3rd Street, and will participate in a road cleanup once every three months. Cleanups are usually on a Saturday between 9am - 11am.
The sign-up sheet will be located in CFCC’s Veterans Center on the Wilmington Campus (U-124) and North Campus (NB-200), as well as the admissions window.
Please take a few minutes to watch the informational video for more details regarding the cleanup or email Veterans Affairs Coordinator Jason Bocchino at email@example.com.
If it's got a plug--you can recycle it! Computer/phones/cords and other household electronics can be dropped of at any of our electronic recycling fixtures. They are located at the Union Station Building (across from Port City Java), the S-building lobby (near the elevators), and on the North Campus in the McKeithan Center lobby.
If you are worried about leaving behind any of your personal info on an electronic device, bring it to the IT Help Desk (G-building or McKeithan Center) and have them take a look.
CFCC is now recycling used dry erase markers, permanent markers, all types of pens, mechanical pencils, and highlighters. Drop them off at either the Wilmington or North Campus Libraries.
From February 2021 to October 2021, CFCC recycled 145 pounds of batteries! Since we started battery recycling in Fall 2014, CFCC has recycled a grand total of 1,530 pounds.
You can find battery recycling fixtures on the Wilmington Campus: Library, S-building Second Floor Lobby, G-building Lobby, Union Station (beside the Port City Java), Wilson Center (beside the doors to the Studio Theater), P-building (maintenance/custodial) and on the North Campus: Library, NB building hallway, and the NE building lobby.
So, got some batteries rolling around in a desk drawer? Drop them off and keep them out of the landfill!
New Recycling Fixtures
In partnership with New Hanover County Environmental Management, CFCC has added 18 new multisort recycling fixtures on the Wilmington Campus, North Campus, Burgaw Center, and Surf City Center!
All recycling is commingled, so you can place paper/plastic/cans in ANY blue bin you find on campus.
EarthFest was held on Wednesday, April 17th from 11am – 2pm in the Amphitheater located behind Union Station. The Sustainability Committee reserved a table and placed signage (including a brand new table sign that we can use for future events) and had one of our new multisort recycling fixtures placed beside the table. EarthFest was well attended by students, faculty, and staff. The table also promoted VHS recycling in the library on Monday nights along with a live demo of VHS recycling.
