Why Ask Why?

Purington, David – May 7, 2014

Jeff Gonyer is a longtime employee in the Grounds Department who spends much of his time keeping our athletic facilities and fields ready to go–including painting lines on the fields. Last fall, Jeff took the time to ask whether we could recycle the plastic lids from the empty paint buckets (yes!). Because of this simple question, we will now capture around 600 lids for recycling every year. This stack pictured here is only 40 lids–imagine how it will look when it is 15 times bigger.
