UIC Recyclers Saved 1,190 Trees in May

Since April 2010, UIC has been picking up all of its cardboard and paper recycling itself - paper is picked up by Joe Fabrizio and Ray Shumpert  and cardboard by Fred Bartucci and Tim Macias  and they've been doing a great job! The numbers show that in March they collected over 140,000 pounds of material, saving 1,190 trees, 490,095 gallons of water, and reducing landfill volume by 231 cubic yards. The image above shows the history. Let's keep up the good work of separating our recyclables into the right containers and let Joe, Ray, Fred, and Tim keep up the good work of collecting it!
