UGA Recycles Newspaper!

The University of Georgia generates approximately 700 tons of waste per month. Paper makes up 68% of the campus waste stream. When paper is made from waste paper rather than from virgin pulp, the manufacturing process requires less energy and significantly reduces the amount of air and water pollution.

Let's all do our part in keeping UGA green!
