A Green Fund Grant was received to purchase an electric Columbia ParCar Mega Van, SAS's first electric vehicle. The Mega Van replaced a 1991 maintenance-intensive and highly polluting petro-fueled Daihatsu, and is currently being used by SAS computing to facilitate the pickup and delivery of computing equipment.
Installation of one 20-yard recycling compactor and one 6-yard trash compactor in the Department of Chemistry loading dock in order to implement a department-wide lab glass and lab metal recycling program
The additional compactor will also increase the department’s capacity to recycle paper, cardboard and commingled materials while reducing the number of pickups from 10-12 to 2-3 per week
