Cal State East Bay will host a campus recycling event on that day to remove mixed paper, confidential documents, books, and furniture cluttering up workspaces. 

All 17 students enrolled in the Environmental Studies (ENVT) 4800 Senior Seminar class in the Geography and Environmental Studies Department will be working with 40 campus volunteers and staff of the Facilities Development & Operations Department to reuse, recycle and donate unwanted items. They will report the results of their efforts to Cal State East Bay President Leroy M. Morishita.

“Having developed and piloted this event this year as a class project, it is envisaged that it could be taken on in future years by the student club or as a student-organized activity,” said Michael Lee, professor of geography and environmental studies.

After reaching out across campus for feedback, the ENVT 4800 students limited the scope of the cleanup to items likely to be most voluminous (paper, books, furniture).  They will be creating a series of outreach material  for the campus community on how to deal with other types of waste (e.g. hazardous, e-waste and universal) which were not included as part of the clean-up day.

Facilities staff members, volunteers and students will be coordinating recycling efforts with each office between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on May 30. For more information, contact Professor Lee at
