Community Engagement

Encouraging the campus community to participate in events like e-waste drives and clean-ups are the best way to spread action and awareness about important topics of sustainability. Below are some examples of how FM involves students and staff in efforts that will support Western's future.

20 Minute Makeover & Campus Wide Clean Up

20 Minute Makeover

Every spring, Facilities Management provides trash pokers, gloves, and garbage bags for students and staff participating in community clean up inititives. Just 20 minutes of cleaning up, picking up, and sweeping up litter and debris can make a huge difference!

E-Waste Drives

E-Waste Drive

The proper disposal of e-waste not only allows for the protection of humans and wildlife, but also allows for items to be broken down into base components and properly recycled or reused. By bringing your old electronics to Western’s e-waste drive you will be disposing of them in a safe, environmentally-friendly way.
