Recycling in Light Hall has finally seen the light of day. The student-led RecyClinic program kicked off this week, and mixed paper and aluminum collected in the appropriate bins will be recycled.

Currently, bins are located throughout the second and third floors of Light Hall.

According to the program’s directors, second-year students Peter Brokish and Raimy Amasha, the goal is to expand to floors four through eight by the end of the medical school year. They hope to add plastic recycling, as well.

RecyClinic is funded by a grant from the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. The program also involves a community outreach program and corresponds with a new elective titled “Healthy Living: Nutrition, Medicine and the Environment,” offered by H. Wayne Lambert, Ph.D., instructor in Cell and Developmental Biology, and faculty advisor to the RecyClinic program.
