The Northern Michigan University Recycling Committee has been working for more than nine years to develop a comprehensive recycling program for the university community. Some of the many reasons for pursuing these goals include:

  • Recycling symbolenabling the university community an opportunity to participate in the conservation of natural resources
  • enabling the university to play a significant role in decreasing the rate at which the Marquette County Landfill reaches its maximum capacity
  • saving significant sums of money that would otherwise be spent for hauling trash to the landfill

In order for a university recycling program to be effective it is essential that all members of the community take their share of the responsibility. The loop at the top of the page is a reminder to us that recycling is a loop. If recycling is to succeed, we as consumers must purchase post-consumer recycled products. Buy recycled!
