Keep Louisiana Beautiful Grant Expands on Campus Recycling Options

Thanks to the work of our Keep Louisiana Beautiful Affiliate team, led by Mark Tobler, Loyola has received over $4,800 to upgrade on campus recycling options.

This includes new signage and recycling stations around Monroe Hall, and a glass recycling hub at the north entrance to the West Road parking garage. The university will be partnering with Glass Half Full, a local company that processes glass into sand for disaster relief, coastal restoration and more. The stations will be on-site and functioning by Feb. 1.

“We’re excited to bring more recycling opportunities to campus, something students and employees have been asking about for a while,” said Mark Tobler, coordinator for the new Keep Loyola Beautiful program and environment program research associate. “Our eventual goal is to expand and upgrade even more receptacles and hubs across campus, and we’re grateful to Keep Louisiana Beautiful for supporting this important initiative at Loyola.”
