Have you ever held an item in your hand just before tossing it into the trash bin and thought, should I recycle this? The new dorm recycling program was created to help make this choice easy.

Recycling is good for the environment and helps reduce pollution and waste in landfills and oceans, but for it to be effective, it needs to be accessible and convenient. This is one of the factors behind the success of Peterson AFB's recycling effort.
