Recycle Initiative: "Recycle Write"

This entry should be read by both PERC Staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.

Hello and Happy New Year!

I want to share with you some information about a recycle program being initiated this year in which you may wish to participate. The program, Recycle Write!, allows U-M staff, students, faculty and volunteers to dispose of pens, pencils and markers in an evironmentally-responsible way. Each year, millions of writing instruments are needlessly discarded and end up in landfills. To right this wrong, U-M has partnered with eco-friendly innovator TerraCycle to bring the Recycle Write! program to our campus.

In addition to recycling old writing utensils into new products, TerraCycle will also donate $0.02 to the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital for each item recycled through the Recycle Write! program!

Please click on the following link to see what items are acceptable and to learn more about the program.

If you are interested in participating, just bring any items you may have at home to the PERC; I will see that they are sent to the appropriate recycle location. I have placed a Recycle Write sign on a U-M plastic bag for recycle items.

If you have any questions, please let me know!
