Each summer, all the staff in Finance and Administration and their families come together for a luau in nearby Avery Park, a casual event that gives our staff a chance to meet people across our different units and get to know each other better. Starting in 2009, Campus Recycling began collecting compost at the event. Each year, a few staff members volunteer to help cover a recycle station to help people sort.
This year we composted and recycled 261 lbs, or 519 gallons of material! If you imagine a 13-gallon flip-top kitchen trash bin, the amount of material we diverted from the landfill would fill that bin 40 times!
Mahalo to our volunteers and attendees!
