Emory University will be celebrating National Recycling Week, November 14 -- 21. This week will focus on our educational campaign to promote Emory's goal of reducing or diverting Emory's total waste stream by 65% by 2015. This goal can only be reached through recycling, collecting and diverting electronic waste, recycling building and road construction materials, and composting organic waste and animal bedding materials.

Here is the list of events sponsored by Emory's Office of Sustainability Initiatives and Emory Recycles:
