UAB Recycling Needs You!

The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) takes recycling seriously.  UAB created a Recycling Center that not only recycles materials from their campus, but also it accepts separated recyclables from the public during the drop-off hours of 6:30am - 8:30am and 4pm - 6pm on Mondays.

The UAB Recycling Center is asking for volunteers on Saturday, August 11, 2012 from 8am -5pm, to assist them with the Residence Hall/Dorm Move-in.  Volunteers will assist in recycling the numerous boxes brought in by the incoming freshmen.  It's a for good cause, plus - it's pretty fun. Much of the work will consist of breaking down/flattening boxes and tossing them in the dumpster, and also directing the parents and students to do the same.

Whether you can help for the entire day, or only for a couple hours - it will be greatly appreciated!  If you are interested in being a volunteer, please contact Life The Green Way for additional details.
