The Environment and Recycling
Pace University is committed to facilitating the pursuit of knowledge in a context of social responsibility. An awareness of our responsibility to protect the environment prompted the development of the GreenPACE Recycling Program, which was implemented on each campus during the 1991 academic year. The GreenPACE Recycling Program was initiated by the president and developed by the University-wide Task Force on Re-cycling in cooperation with the Pace Initiatives Committee on Health, Law, and the Environment.
The program designates and provides for the collection and disposal of the following materials:
* New York City: corrugated cardboard, office paper, metal food cans, glass, deposit, aluminum cans, and bulk waste
* Pleasantville/Briarcliff: deposit aluminum cans, glass, newspaper, and office paper
* White Plains : office paper and deposit aluminum cans
Information about the GreenPACE Recycling Program may be obtained from the Director of the Environmental Center on each campus.
