New sorting stations at North help to minimize waste

The Grove at North College now has consistent waste stations with standard bins for Compost, Recycle and Garbage. Help the college reduce its carbon footprint and "Keep our Campus Clean and Green."

If you have any suggestions for how we can continue to improve this system, visit the Sustainability Office in CC1453A or give us a call at (206) 634-6127.

The Sustainability Office will also begin an outreach and education campaign that will include flyers and information for new student and international programs orientation every quarter, along with special events to remind current students how to properly dispose of waste and recycling. »

Seattle Colleges celebrates Earth Day 2016

North, Central, and South Seattle Colleges celebrated Earth Day 2016 in their own ways. At North and Central campuses, they both held "Earth Day Symposium" events where local, regional, and national sustainability-minded non-profits and organizations set up table displays and representatives were there to talk with students, faculty, and staff. Both symposiums also featured presentations that informed attendees how they can be a little greener and how they can get more involved with sustainability projects. South campus screened the short film, "A Village Called Versailles," and hosted several local and regional organizations as panelists to discuss the themes of social justice and equity that arise in the film. Panelists included representatives from Rainier Valley Corps, US Environmental Protection Agency, Southeast Seattle Education Coalition, Rainier Beach Action Coalition, and Rainier Beach Moving Forward. All in all, there were lots of good conversations, smiles, and inspiration on how we can all be more sustainable.
