Brand New Zero Waste Station_HighPass

A few new recycling stations are being set up around campus in an effort to reduce the amount of materials going into the regular trash that could otherwise be recycled.

Each station is being called a Zero Waste Station and is made up of five recycling bins, with each bin being colour coded, and having visual and text instructions of what is to go inside.
