The University of Alberta is committed to providing accommodation that reflects highly valued sustainability initiatives such as conserving energy and water, as well as recycling. As such, products including fluorescent lights, ultra low flush toilets and motion sensors have been installed wherever possible in residence.
You'll see these friendly faces in your community. They might be knocking on your door with sustainability updates and more!
Treat the environment with the respect it deserves and reduce the impact of increasing utility costs on rental rates:
In an effort to meet the university’s goal of diverting 50 per cent of campus waste from the landfill, the Office of Sustainability and Residence Services are working together to encourage recycling in residence.
You can make a difference! You will see various recycling bins available in your residence and in all campus buildings. Each colour corresponds to a certain type of recycling. Please be sure to sort all of your waste. If incorrect items are placed in recycle or compost bins, the entire bin may be contaminated, which means it may have to be sent to the landfill. Click on your residence building for detailed recycling information.
