The baseline adopted reflects our fiscal year and academic year.
UW - Green Bay is an active participant in the Surplus With A Purpose (SWAP) Prgoram. This program is run by the Business Services-Purchasing department within the UW - Madison. It is a multi-faceted surplus property disposal operation that serves all University of Wisconsin - Madison departments, UW State schools, Municipalities, and State of Wisconsin agencies. SWAP finds new homes for equipment and furniture by redistributing it to other departments, selling it to the public, or selling or donating the equipment to non-profit agencies.
UW – Green Bay does not print course catalogs, course schedules or directories. Course catalogs are available online at http://www.uwgb.edu/catalog/; course schedules are available at http://sis.uwgb.edu/schedule/; and, the campus directory is available at http://sis.uwgb.edu/DirectorySearch/index.asp .
UW-Green Bay students receive a credit of $7 for printing on their University ID for the academic year. This is paid for by the student technology fee. Black and white laser printing cost $.07 per page, color laser printing cost $.30 per page, and tabloid color printing costs $.60 per page. If students use up their allocated funds, they can add funds at their own expense to their Pay-for-Print account.
UW – Green Bay works with several local charities during move-out to collect unused, unopened food items for a local food pantry as well as with a resale store which collects furniture and other reusable items. For move-out in Spring 2013, campus is parterning with Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin on a materials drive. All students will receive a bag from Goodwill to collect items while they are packing up and dedicated drop off sites will be used for collections.
A robust recycling program exists including the adoption of plastic film recycling in Spring 2014. This includes pallet wrap, plastic shopping bags, and other types of flexible plastic films that are #2 or #4. Over 500 lbs were collected in approximately 12 weeks during the trial period for this new recycling program.
UW-Green Bay has become a 'Campus Kitchens' member in Spring 2014 and through this program donates prepared but not sold food items from the cafeterias to food programs in the area.
Eco-clamshells are available and can be purchased for $6 and the main food service areas. The customer can bring the dirty container back in for washing, and exchange it with a clean reusable to-go container.No muss, no fuss, no single use plastic in the wastestream.
Reusable mugs are available for purchase at food vending locations. A 25% discount is given to individuals using these mugs to purchase refills at our coffee house.
We do actively reuse and donate materials to various charitable agencies across the area, but have no mechanism in place to track weights of this type of action.
