TWU students organize “Dumpster Diving” event Oct. 30 to promote recycling


DENTON – Texas Woman’s University students plan to sift through dumpsters from three residence halls and collect recyclable materials during a “Dumpster Diving” event at TWU’s Denton campus Friday Oct. 30.

TWU’s “Dumpster Diving” event will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 30 on the northwest side of campus by the Lowry Woods Community, next to Chapel Drive. Community, student, faculty and staff volunteers are welcome to participate. For more information, email hschmidt1@twu.edu.

“The TWU community is excited at the possibility of a single stream recycling program being implemented at the university,” said Kimberly Joines, an interdisciplinary studies junior. “Using this large sample from student housing, we will know how much trash produced from Guinn, Stark and Lowry Woods is recyclable and could be part of the new program.”

The TWU Facilities Management and Construction Department, TWU students, the TWU student organization TREES and the City of Denton Solid Waste and Recycling Department are sponsoring the event to promote recycling at TWU.
