Transcript: UAA students respond to incentives; Put a recycling bin in every classroom. Put up posters around campus to persuade students to allow an increase of the Green Fee. Raise the $3 a semester Green Fee. That the people behind UAA's sustainability efforts are the very first ones poised to lose their jobs with UAA's next fiscal year's budget cut of $14 million?! Order matters! REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE. As Larry Foster, a UAA math professor, put it "if you have to recycle, you didn't make the right decision to start off with."

According to the EPA, with less than 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. consistently consumes about 33% of the world's paper, 25% of oil, 15% of coal, and 17% of aluminum. Part 2 of Solution The EPA calculates that, in 2012, Americans recycled almost 87 million tons of material out of 251 million tons. Recycling Rates of Selected Products, 2012 Part 1 of Solution What is the Sustainability Department? Importance to UAA. Materials included in UAA's recycling program. What Exactly Is Being Done Already at UAA? $3 Green Fee is where we plan to get our funding. All about the Money (Cost-Benefit Analysis) (And no matter what anyone says, Alaska, and by extension, UAA, are part of America!) http://www.epa.gov/epawaste/nonhaz/municipal/ Save the Sustainability Department! Always Remember... Recycling at UAA by Janelle, Troy, Madison Did you know..? https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=btbar&hsimp=yhs-002&type=br113dm61bs01ts920af129547&p=recycling To Give You An Idea...Every year, UAA spends about $10,000 paying to have their trash picked up and delivered to the landfill. Last year, the Sustainability Department helped to lower that number.

Transcript: by: Claudia M. Andrew L. Dorian W. Haley W. Recycling Businesses The Issue The Issue There aren't any recycling bins in many businesses, so they only throw recyclables away. Plenty of businesses use plastic, cans, and paper. Picture 1 Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 2 Picture 3 Picture 3 Problem Problem Trash is becoming the world's worst nightmare. There needs to be more recycling bins in businesses to collect more things. What We Need To Do What We Need To Do The businesses we are aiming to put bins in are McDonald's, Rhode's, and Subway. We will need to talk to the owners and get it approved. Then, we will need to buy the bins, place them in the businesses, and pick up the recycling every week. Step 1 Step 1 We need to contact the business owners to see if we can put recycling bins in their buildings. Step 2 Step 2 We need to set out the bins and collect the items at the end of each week for a month. Step 3 Project 3 After each week, we will take what we have from each buissness. Then take it to the local recycling center. Key wins A little makes a big diffrence What We Would Accomplish: Goals By putting the bins in the restaurants, we have a higher chance of getting more recycling and decreasing the waste amount. Impact Impact We are hoping that our motive to recycle will impact the customers to recycle themselves and share the idea. Picture the possibilities Picture The Future The Future As a group we are hoping to influence others in the community and buisness to recycle. Idea 1 Idea 1 We are hoping that the businesses that we got involved will continue to recycle on their own. Idea 2 Idea 2 Also people in the community will see what we are doing to help the town and may do it in their own homes. Idea 3 Idea 3 Other buissness can see some of the places we have got involved that they might want to do the same.

Transcript: Recycling Landfills Are you a NIMBY type of person? NIMBY stands for "Not In My Back Yard"! Where Does Trash Go? Incinerators Incinerators means A furnace for burning garbage. Landfills vs. Incinerators What do YOU think? Nature Runoff Great Pacific Trash Patch How long will litter last in the ocean? It Takes..... Aluminum Can- 200-500 years Glass- 1-2 million years Plastic Bottles- 450 years How can we help? By Recycling! We can recycle up to about 75% of our total trash We recycle about 32.5% of our trash in America currently And 5% in Saudi Arabia. What is Recycling? Recycling is when you take old materials and break them down so they can be used to make new materials Glass Broken down Up to 70% of glass can be made from recycled glass Melted with new material Metal Melted down, like glass Made into blocks called ingots Each ingot is made up of 1.6 MILLION drink cans! Ingots are used to make new cans Unlike other recyclables, aluminum can be used over and over again Plastic Not easy to recycle Many different types Often involves high-energy chemical process What can be recycled? Paper Shredded and mixed with water to make pulp Made into paper Paper can only be recycled about seven times. Other Recyclable Things Start small. Think Big! We will recycle Aluminum Cans, Plastic bottles, glass and paper Nature's original way to recycle Remember, YOU can go out and MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Use less Re-use Recycling bins What else? Batteries Carbon emissions What Can YOU do? If any little part of this big system fails, the impacts could be catastrophic What parts could fail and how woud they impact the environment? So, what's wrong with landfills? Money! Think of all the heavy machinery used to run a land fill, and how much fossil fuels they burn The landfill itself emits gasses, including carbon dioxide and methane However, methane gas can be captured and used as an energy source. Any runoff water has to be treated; think of all the energy that takes! We can change the world! Ink Cartridges Extreme Reduce Because a landfill is airtight, things decompose inside very slowly Newspapers dug up from old landfills can still be read FORTY years later! Not a permanent solution No one wants a landfill in their city! A way to "get rid" of our trash by burying it Not just a hole in the ground Complex Layers and systems are put into place to prevent environmental harm Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! Composting It is up to you to be the change you want to see in the school and the world. Useful The costs to keep such a complex system running are very high We, the taxpayers, have to pay for it Even after a landfill is closed, it still costs money to be monitored and repaired. Other ways to help What Are Landfills? Other ways to reuse Reuse Artistic At home and school Landfill Legacy Try to reuse things on a day to day basis Instead of disposable water bottles, use reusable ones Instead of plastic grocery bags, try reusing cloth ones Try using rechargeable batteries Pass on, give away, or sell old things that are still good, but that you no longer need. Examples are clothes, old electronics, furniture, etc. Freecycle: A website where you can post things you no longer need and other people who need them will take them, keeping stuff out of the landfill. Keep packaging material you receive in packages and reuse it when you send out your own packages. Try reusing used plastic food containers as Tupperware Most of Paterson's trash goes Greentree Landfill in Kersey, Pennsylvania. That's 278 miles away; a five hour trip! System Failure Follow The Three R's How can you help your town recycle better? Computers, Cell phones, and TV's. Try to use less of trash-causing items Use less paper. Try using the computer instead Try not to eat out as much. Think of all the trash you create when you do! Be more conscious when buying things; what kind of packaging are things in? Use less transportation. Aside from being better for the environment, things like bikes create far less trash than cars. Reduce as much as you can, but when you can't... Try to reuse as much as possible, and things you can't reuse, try to recycle as much as possible. Use trash only as your last option Become part of the Imperial Recycle Team By: Loulwa AlSaggaf, Rahf Abuzaid, Duniya Saeed and Reem Amer. Can you think of other ways to reuse?

Transcript: Recycling Landfills Are you a NIMBY type of person? NIMBY stands for Not In My Back Yard! Everyone wants their trash GONE. Most people do NOT want it in their city or town How do you think the people at Camana Bay or Bodden Town feel about all our trash being dumped in their backyard? Where Does Other Trash Go? Incinerators Not as bad as they used to be After stricter regulations, all of the incinerators in the US put out less toxins per year then one single backyard bonfire Ash turns trash into a non-toxic, compact substance that can be put into landfills easier Still questions about how safe ash is, especially the finer ash, which may cause cancer Steam produced can sometimes be converted into energy Still uses a LOT of energy Emits greenhouse gases.
